    Such a lovely shade of pink. Mine did not come up this year. To much rain maybe.

    Lovely bloom, Eliza! Hoping we don’t get more torrential rains, which ruined my peonies towards their end. All plants dead-headed and green now!

  9. And, a beautiful Sunday it is with this gorgeous peony on view for all of us to admire. πŸ™‚

    Gorgeous, Eliza. Inviting like a soft pillow. πŸ™‚

  11. It’s a beauty! Ours have been drummed to the ground by recent rains, so this is a lovely treat.

  12. Joanna says:

  14. Wowsah! What a beauty!

    *SIGH* I was hopeful that one if possibly both of my peonies would be prompted to bloom by all that rain we got this past winter but it was not to be. I’m not prepared to dig either plant up yet, however.

    I can almost smell it:-)

  17. Robin says:

    Beautiful. I love that pale shade of pink. It seems like it’s been a long time since our peonies were blooming.

  18. Val says:

    Simply beautiful! I’d love to have peonies here, but I don’t think we’ve room for any more plants!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Val! I know the feeling. While I have lots of space, I’m limited by what I can maintain. I’ve had to cut back more with each passing year and must show great resolve when visiting nurseries. Not so easy! πŸ˜‰
