Pining For Peonies

I'm not sure what year I planted my peony bush.  It was tiny when I planted it.  I knew it wouldn't bloom for a few years.  A couple of years ago, it had one bloom.  Last year, it had three blooms.  This year, I count at least eight!

Some of them are starting to open.


  1. Awesome! My favorite flower!

  2. What a pretty Peony. They are sure slow to get blooming. The one I planted last year has one whole bud this year. I guess this is one of those plants that are worth being patient for.

    Even more peonies were open this evening!

  4. Very pretty! My fern peony is blooming, put the other haven't started yet. I can't wait!

  5. Our peonies are finally starting to bloom too. Aren't they just the lovliest of the spring beauties?
    Also, just wanted to let you know I am awarding you the Versatile Blogger award. Please see my post of today. Congrats!

  6. I bought some type of double peony mix last year and was surprised at how many blooms it had this year. The shades are bright pink like yours, a white, and a light pink. I also have that wild snapdragon from a gardening friend--glad to know what it's real name is--mine has gone to town!!

    Thank you. I'll stop by soon!

    Sounds like you got a great peony deal!
    Isn't that wild snapdragon so pretty and easy?


  8. That is a beautiful bloom! I am not able to grow thease beautiful flowers out here in So Cal. The heat is too much for them. But there is a david Austin rose caled MARY ROSE which with her blooms can pass for a peony. So I do grow her. Thank's for dropping by today....Julian
