  1. Such heavenly images, Lola. I often think that peonies even outstrip roses for beauty. These white ones with a tinge of magenta are exquisite.

    The whites are lovely, LolaWi! So much more used to seeing the hot pinks πŸ™‚

    Oh, these peonies are so lovely, Lola, so elegant. That’s not a flower we see too often in Calif., and I love peonies, so this is a treat to see.

    Larger than life – that first image was delicate and strong and all that white – so purdy!

    Also – my husband’s grandmother had peony plants that were more than 100 years old – we were offered some when they moved – and had to decline – but when these babies bloom – it is a show! 🌸🌸🌸
