Peony Love

A short and sweet post today.........really sweet, in fact!


My favorite flower



A very short season, which makes it all the more sweeter to enjoy them.



With hope of extending their beauty.  I hope you are enjoying your spring.  I am, except for weeding!  But a small price to pay for God's gift to us.

Special thanks to my friend Dawn.  An early early birthday gift of beautiful peonies.

  2. Hi Barbara,

    So nice to see you and hear from you!! What a sweet and thoughtful birthday gift from your friend! I love peonies, too; I keep hoping to plant some in our yard, but we somehow don't get around to it. Yours are just beautiful. I love the way their petals look like ruffles and lace. :)

    I hope you're doing well; I think of you often. Take care and enjoy your day!

    Hugs,

  3. I love peonies but have no luck growing them. My grandmother had a beautiful bush. The only problem is they are always filled with ants.

  16. Peonies are your favorite flower? I didn't give much thought to this flower until I saw them on many of my friend's blogs, and now I think they're so pretty. They look like a sturdy flower, much like the rose. I really like them too. Your pictures are very nice.
