peonies

our fragrant white peonies have come and gone but not without me snatching some photos of this short-lived beauty.  i do this every spring before generous cuttings make their way into a gorgeous bouquet.  every bloom takes my breath away.

    Our peonies were stricken with some kind of black death this year, so our blossom count was greatly decreased 😦 Gonna be hard to wait a whole ‘nother year! Thanks for sharing yours through those beautiful pics. Cheers, Ben

    I used to have a lot of this variety outside of my fence – curbside by the gate. Too bad that I couldn’t plant them in the Philippines.

    I bought some softest pink ones in the supermarket yesterday. Never seen peonies for sale as cut flowers before. They’re opening out beautifully 🙂
