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.

Hi there, Just found you and loved the Peonies-in fact hubby and I hope to get some for next year. I can't wait to read more of your posts, in fact I think I'll be following you.
Have a splendid week.

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 . . . .

Beautiful!

Gorgeous!
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.

So jealous, Peonies are my favorite. I live in the South where its just to hot for them to bloom.
