very beautiful collection
Aren't they the most exquisite flowers?We don't see them very often here - I think our climate is too harsh.But I would love to have a try at growing them.
Thank yo, EVLAHOS! :-)FREEFALLING:The need spring weather here too, the early ones at least, mostly tree peonies. Peony is my favorite flower. ;-)
Peonies are my absolute favorite flower. And it always seems that when they finally come into bloom, we get big thunderstorms that destroy them. I put vases full all through my house.Eileen (passions to pastry)@www.livingtastefully.com
wow! I'd love to have my house filled with vases of these beauties too.
What a great show of colour and the photos are well framed, great captures.
EILEEN:That is so true!I remember one garden in Washington, where the owners put a mobile roof over their peonies, to better protect them during the heavy thunderstorms that like to hit during May. ANN (MOBAYDP):I shall go to the farmers' market on Saturday morning, and get an armfull of those beauties. ;-)IMAC:Thank you! :-)
Funny I just saw great big fat hot pink peonies on 8th Avenue...Synchronicity?
There are white and pink peopnies in my garden, but they are not blooming yet. Such a lovely fragrance! But always accompanied by big black ants!
Peonies are my favorite, too. I remember as a child coming up the place we spent every summer, to discover that someone had tried to dig up the peonies in the border (but they didn't get the roots . . .)
These photos are so very beautiful..In Florida the weather is too hot for them...my daughter in upstate New York has them..they are so lovely...
lovely capture & color.Good to be back here ....!
Beautiful peonies. Pity they drop so quickly. We have red ones in our garden.
You could totally frame these and put them on your wall- how beautiful!
Of all the flowers, peonies are my favorite...mine haven't bloomed this year hopefully they will soon. These are so lovely!The coffee is on, I made petit fours just for you!Sandi
Simply gorgeous! David sent me - D
PARIS BREAKFAST:Synchronicity or serendipity, that is the question! ;-)EX-SHAMMICKITE:Those ants have great taste in flowers! ;-)TUT-TUT:What a shame!I read somewhere that peonies need up to five years to start blooming again after being transplanted.DEE-DEE:Amazingly they do bloom in the Washington, DC area, must be the fact that springs tend to be cooler there.RULZBENDER:Welcome back!I was afraid you'd gotten lost in the Valley of the Flowers, high in the Himalayan mountains. ;-)
MAGGIE MAY:When the nights are cool and the sun's out with rain in between, they seem to last longer. Unfortunately those perfect conditions rarely occur once they bloom.CHRISTINE:Welcome!I do like photos on the wall,black and white ones are my first choice, though.
SANDI MCBRIDE:You answered my question before I could ask it: How wonderful that peonies make it all the way down to South Carolina!I dropped in at your place last night, was VERY surprised to find a zucchini loaf instead of petit fours! :-)))
MOMMA:Welcome,and thank you for mentioning that David sent you! I had not realised that he had mentioned my post.
Breakfast until 6 p.m.?Hey! That is TOTALLY my kind of country!Sign me up for ham and eggs, over easy... at around 3 in the afternoon.And what does the rest of the sign say about Schremser beer?Something about "Why stop at 3? How about 4?"Once again.My kind of livin'.
I definetly love the viennese nature and flowers !!!
