Almost missed it...

My peony bushes are tucked away in the corners of our lot -- stashed between aspen trees, junipers, and pines. They are in an obscure spot, not readily seen from the back door. What with our traveling, the wedding planning, and life, I almost missed their peak. Fortunately, I caught sight of them yesterday and picked the whole lot -- on both bushes -- for a beautiful, massive bouquet. Oh how I love their ruffley goodness!

Peonies are my favorites! I planted 3 last year, and was a little disappointed when they bloomed. They were supposed to be double peonies, not single!!! Oh well, I bought more this year and can't wait for the bounty next spring!

Wish they were hardy enough for Florida! It will over 100 and even I would melt if I outside. Frilly they are and so pretty!
