Peonies In Bloom


The peonies are beginning to bloom.

These are the ones I forced last week.  I had to help them open up but then they bloomed out nicely.  These are from a bush in the back of the house.

The rest of these photos are from my peony bush in the cottage garden in the front of the house.

I don't know the name of these peonies, but the smell like old fashioned roses! Love them!

I hope you had lovely weekend.  We had a quiet weekend, but it was nice.  Tim planted my new hydrangea yesterday, and I'll show that to you soon.  The roses are going to bloom soon, too! I'm very happy about that!


  1. No finer flower except for its all too brief bloom time. I really like the fourth photo...it could be a magazine cover.

  2. I am anxiously waiting for my pink peony buds to open! Your red is beautiful.

  3. They are beautuful! Flowers = happiness

  4. Your peonies are beautiful!! So nice that you are able to have some cheery blooms inside as well as those in the garden. They are so cheerful!!

  5. Your peonies are gorgeous! Mine are still working on putting out the bud, and I can't wait for them to bloom, they have such a gorgeous flower! Have a lovely week, enjoy all those gorgeous blooms and scents!

  6. Oh what gorgeous blooms! I can almost smell them:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!
