Sunday Peonies

Peonie1

Peonie2 Peonie3

We planted peonies in our backyard a few years back and now they are producing beautifully and expanding. The blooms -- which appear right after our young lilac bush drops its purple flowers -- last only a short time. While they're here, they're a precious sight to behold with a scent to match.

OOOh, my peonies bloomed a week or so ago, and the wind the last few days totally beat them, dried them. But they were lovely while they lasted. Peonies are a magnificent treat for the spring.

Hi You Two! (Barb & Mary Ellen)
Love the peonies. I know they are difficult to grow in this climate, and yours are thriving. Thanks for all the work you do on the website, you keep me updated with real information.
Love, CO
