Peek of Peonies

My favorite flower, along with tulips, is the peony. I love how they unfold like a rose, only with a larger bloom and none of those pesky thorns. I get more than a kick out of my peony bushes because they’ve been through a lot. Transplanted twice – once in the back yard and then a few years ago moved to the front and side, they have continued to bloom and flourish. I think they are floral warriors.

Based upon their proximity to sun, they bloom at different times, so that there is a steady flow of blooms.

So, every day or so, I’m out snipping a few and bringing them inside. They accent almost every room.

This is just a peek, as they haven’t reached their peak. Just gives me more to look forward to.

Hoping that things are blooming in your garden and that you have lots to look forward to this weekend!


  1. I am glad to hear that they survived transplanting as I have two that I am going to try to move this fall. I think that they do not get enough sun and so only give me one or two blooms each year. Yours are beautiful!

  2. Your peonies are fabulous! How wonderful to have so many to accent each room. Have a great weekend.

  3. Elizabeth from the time I was a little girl and our peony bushes lined the fence at home, I have loved this flower beyond!! Thank you for sharing yours!! Enjoy the weekend!

  5. You have inspired me to plant peonies in my yard. Your placement of them in your home is very pretty.

  6. Peonies are my absolutely favorite flower and, sadly, I haven't found any in my usual resources this year. Yours are simply gorgeous!! Hope you had a lovely and relaxing weekend!! xoxo

  7. Perfectly pretty, Elizabeth! We planted some new ones for our garden project, but they need a bit more time before they will yield blooms. So I've been relying on the grocery stores for my peony fix. Yours are just lovely! XOXO
