Peony Season

I hadn’t heard of Peonies until I moved in with Doug.  He has two Peony plants but his neighbors have tons.  All throughout the older neighborhood Peonies thrive.

It wasn’t until I started dabbling in party planning did I learn that Peonies are such a prized flower.  It makes sense – they are full of luscious layers and they are in full bloom for only a week or so.  (At least in our yard.)  Since they come and go so fast, this year I wanted to follow them from Spring to Summer.

Don’t their folds look like tissue paper? They are such a delicate flower – sadly, most of ours are already gone – Peony petals are spread all over our lawn from the fierce wind.

Hello, Goodbye Peonies.

    I also love the Peony flower. I was never sucessful in growing them. I think they have to be buried quite shallow. Your pictures are great. When I grew up, all the houses had Peonies, Iris, and Lilacs, and they would bloom just in time to make bouquets to take to the cemetaries on Memorial Day.

    Those are great pictures, so pretty the peony. We had one in N.S.L. but it never bloomed. I love that you captured all of its beauty.
