My Peony

Hi
It has been so rainy and cool here not much is blooming. I was only able to get a pic of the peonies in the front garden before the rain started again.

Those are so pretty! And big! Love the double flowered types. And they look great next to your hosta!

We've not had a summer here at all yet. Rain, rain and more rain. When it's not raining, it's cloudy. I think we've only had a handful of sunny days since the beginning of June. :sad:

Thundershowers today, sunny tomorrow, cloudy the rest of the week and then more rain is forecasted. :sad:

Oh how I love peonies!

The light pink look so delicate and soft! Mine were all done about a month ago. They seem to have come out early this year--humph?

Beautiful peony.

A couple days after mine bloomed we got a bad windstorm which wiped out every single flower. :sad:

Where about are u? Sounds like we are having the same weather. It has been cool at lot in July 50f during the day... 40's at night and rainy almost every day.

Suppose to be sunny and 24C tomorrow, but i'll believe it when I see it!

When my peonies start to bloom seems like we have a heavy rain storm and smashes the blooms down. This year I forgot to put the peony rings up so I ran out and picked some blooms so they could smell up the house. *S*
