First Peony Clippings


I clipped the first peonies from our garden the other day. The blossoms are much bigger than last year as I had just planted them last spring. This variety is called 'Shirley Temple'. I love the fluffy white softness of the white petals.



I put the little bouquet on my night stand.

  24. Peonies are one of my absolute favorite flowers, in part because their bloom period is so sweetly short and that makes me savor them all the more . . . .

    I have never seen peonies so white. All the white ones I have seen still have a pink tinge. I will definitely keep my eye out for these.
