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!”


    • 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.
