My favorite! If you need any ants to help the buds open, I can send you some from my kitchen counter--blech!Best,Bonnie
Ah, sigh. If only I could grow them here. They don't even SELL them here.

Beautiful. Many thanks. :-)Greetings from London.
i'm sighing with ms. moon... no peonies in florida...
There isn't a day that I don't read your blog, and rarely a day that I am not touched by something that you write or share visually. Thank you.
The girls and I were just chatting about our favorites and these,these ranked right at the top.Beautiful.
My sister and I would take freshly cut peonies to our teachers when we were little. I remember walking to school holding tight to the tinfoil wrapped around the stems. I would be especially pleased when halfway to school ants emerged and began scurrying up and down the stems. I never thought for an instant that my teacher would not be equally pleased with those busy ants.
oh! I can pick them unblossomed? I didn't know this. I might go snip one later today. Thanks. I'm reading backwards.I gave my therapist a peony for her new office yard. She will cut the flowers for a vase in her office I imagine and that will make me happy. Hers is this color too.I love especially the cotton candy pink ones.
I love these, and seeing them open and bloom with each progressive posting. Thank you for sharing your peonies - and your thoughts - with me.
