Another vase of peonies.
Went into the garden to rescue the peonies from the torrential downpour we had on Sunday. Fortunately not many were past the bud stage so there will still be plenty in the garden. I find that peony hoops are ineffective in this type of weather.
I was surprised that many survived the storm.
Have I mentioned that before the clematis love, there were peonies…roses…hydrangeas……? Brings to mind the lyrics “when I am not near the one I love… I love the one I’m near!”
The bouquet of peonies makes such a beautiful picture. I love the last picture with the yellow center and am wondering what variety it is.
Jennifer, I do not know the name of this particular peony. I was allowed to dig several beauties out of an old neglected garden some 20 years ago and this was one of them. Sorry.
