Peony time

I can't believe how long it's been, again, since I last wrote here. I have been over-thinking each potential topic and I just need to jump back into it.

So, with no further ado, here is a bouquet of peonies I cut yesterday. I had just returned from a five-day trip to Sacramento, where my nephew was married Saturday, and I was happy to see that the peonies had hung on long enough for me to enjoy them.

The wedding was great, by the way, and I'm very glad I went. More on that later!

Beautiful peonies! They're one of my favourite early summer flowers and I miss them as we don't have any since we moved. Hope to see more of you in the blogosphere.

Such beautiful flowers. We have them also, sadly their bloom only lasts for a few days.

Peonies remind me of my mother. She loved them and our garden had every shade from white to deep pink. Before she died, she insisted we move some of her plants to our property and I am so glad that I did. They are very happy here at the edge of the woods. Seeing them blossom at this time of year reminds me of her everyday!

I'm always happy to see your smiling "face" here in my Reader. Love those peonies, but remember all you have to do to make me happy is show up and say HI! :-)

Beautiful flowers, worthy of painting.

What beautiful peonies! I used to have a white bush in the backyard but I managed to kill it. Love the picture.

My mother had peony bushes in Green Bay and when I'd visit in June, she'd have cut them and placed them all over the house. They grew like a weed.

In Texas, we pay $5 a stem for them. So, not too often in house. My daughter-in-law and I gawk when we see them at weddings.

Hi Nancy, it's always good to see you! The peonies are wonderful. I have a couple of bushes but always have the ant problem when I bring them in. Pity because they smell amazing and look so lovely!

My peonies are just starting to show their faces. They seem a little late this year ... am so looking forward to my first bouquet. Yours is beautiful.
