To All Peony Lovers

Hello everyone,
Do you love the Peony Plant? 
I do...
My mother had a beautiful peony bed 
in her garden for many many years. 
When she passed away in 2012 I had 
the chance to dig up a large amount of
her coveted peonies and plant them
in my garden.
I planted them in a shady part of my flower bed. 
next to my angel and a fairy rose. 
The rainy weather has put a damper 
on cutting a bouquet for My Peony Tea Time.
Maybe tomorrow I can cut some of these
beauties for another photo shoot.
Every time I look at the blooms I remember 
my mother's happy smile.

"Gardening gives me
fun and health and
knowledge. It gives me
laughter and colour. It
gives me pictures of 
almost incredible beauty." 
from My Garden's Good-Night

  1. Being in my grandma's old farm house I have had the opportunity to move her peonies to a better location of the yard and see them shine again. I absolutely love them and think of her every year they bloom. Thanks for the beautiful pictures of yours!

  2. So gorgeous! How special to have your Mom's peonies.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous!! I planted TEN peonies in my new house just a few weeks ago - I hope and pray they do well because I adore peonies!!

  4. I have many old ones that came with my house and just planted a new one with my roses this year. My mom loved lilacs and roses. She knew all the wild places where they grew and we would go collect them for vases. When I returned a few years ago it was all condos. She love all plants and carried them around the world as we moved, including the Hollyhock seeds she'd grown since a child. I've planted a rose garden in her memory. I'll think of you this Mother's Day. It's still hard, isn't it, but the memories help. Those peonies are gorgeous! Do you by any chance know their names?

  5. I love roses but in deep South Texas it can be tricky.
    I have made mistakes, but I keep trying.
    Thank you for sharing this at Thoughts of Home on Thursday.
    We are so glad you are here.
