    Not long now! My first ones opened on Monday. 😃

  3. Alice says:

    For ‘us’ a surprise…..photo next week, please?!

  4. Mine are *just* starting to open, but it’s going to be chillier for the next few days do perhaps they’ll hold off…

    Every time I see peonies, I remember my grandmother’s pronunciation of their name: ‘PINE-ees.’ Where that came from, I don’t know — but she grew some beauties.

  6. Dale says:

    A sign of something wonderful to come. What colour are these ones? They are so pretty no matter their colour!

  7. So little and modest. Quite a difference from the showy flower it will become.

  8. Donna Donabella says:

    The excitement builds and I have no patience!

  9. Debbie says:

    Yeah, you’ve got something wonderful to look forward to!!

  10. Tina says:

    Beautiful foliage. I love flowers before they’re open–do you know the color?

  11. Jet Eliot says:

    So beautiful…and hopeful.

    Can’t wait to see the blooms!

  14. Kris P says:

    *SIGH* It’s peony envy season again.

  15. John says:

    Lovely, and no ants. ❤️

  16. Widdershins says:

    Grow, my pretty, grow! 😀

  17. Another couple of warm days 🤞

  18. I think a series of daily shots showing it opening would be wonderful! 😉

    I have one TINY peony “bush” and the folks who cut my grass hacked it down to nothing. To be fair there was not a way for them to have known because to them it looks like nothing. But I was quite sad. So I will enjoy your peonies!

      Oh, so sorry, Sylvia, how heart-breaking. 😦 Lawn guys tend to be overzealous with the weed mower, I’ve found. I know it is a matter of undereducated labor, but they are still not high on my list!

  20. Isn’t that pretty! I’ve never seen one.

  21. I made so many divisions and they all look healthy can’t wait for the blooms xo

    Oh DUH. I was thinking, ‘peony!’ haha 😉
