What is prettier than a peony?

The peonies were so pretty this year. It always seems to rain just after they bloom out and they just hold so much water in their petals that they droop to the ground. I always try to pick some before that happens.
What is prettier than a peony? A lot of peonies! They make such lush and good smelling bouquets. I only wish they lasted longer.


  1. They remind me of my daughter's wedding. They are her favorite flower and at first she didn't think she would be able to include them in her flowers. Everything worked out though and at the last minute the florist was able to find some (and we were able to afford them ;-) ~ funny how of all the details, and of all the flowers, those stick out!! So cool that you can grow them in your very own yard!!

  2. Just beautiful, I love peonies too. I'm so sad that they don't last longer in the gardens. I'll enjoy your photos, until next year...thanks for sharing. Take Care, Carrie

  3. Gran, thank you so much for adding to my list of British (and Irish) authors! Now my problem is remembering to carry my list to the library and Barnes & Noble with me! LOL! I need to make a copy, 1 for my purse and 1 to keep next to my computer.

    Hope you have a nice weekend.

  4. Peonies are one of my favourite flowers! Thank you for visiting my blog the other day. I have added your name to the giveaway hat. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.


  5. Peonies are my favorites! I see them so rarely here in Hawaii, but I love them so...
