Peony: Before and After

20140617-Peony00007My peony has been progressing slowly.  I posted a photo a few weeks ago when it was still a tight little ball (here).  This past week it started opening and once it got going, it didn’t take long for it to be in full bloom.

  1. A dear neighbor gave me a couple of starts from her peonies. They are such lush and beautiful flowers. What a sweet way to remember your mom.

    1. I think that I better clarify my earlier comment. I am impressed by all of your work, Maralee. I especially like when you photograph flowers and animals (including birds).

      1. That’s what makes flowers so interesting. If they were the same all year, a garden would lose all its interest. But peonies are very short lived, I agree.

I'd love to hear from you
