    I have a white peony bush in my yard from a student that was in my room 6 years ago. Everytime it blooms I think of her, whe is a doll! It was one of the nicest "teacher" gifts I have ever received!

  • Kathleen Frances says:

    We have gorgeous peonies in our flower bed. They look even more gorgeous on our dining table. I just don't have the heart to cut them off the plant

  • Jennifer says:

    Not yet! I'm seeing them all over the blogs, and though ranunculi are my ultimate favorites, these are right up there. I forgot to look for them in the market today, so maybe tomorrow…

  • Kathryn says:

    I am mad about these beautiful flowers…. You have inspired me to get some for my house today. Thank you.

  • Jaybird and Me says:

    I CANT FIND ANY!!!! But I have stopped and asked many times!!!!

    However, I planted to sorbets in my backyard and one of them is successfully shooting up some promising looking tentacles. So perhaps someday I'll have them in my own backyard!

    omg – I'm obsessed. I've already spent wayyy too much of my paycheck on these pretty beauties.

    So nice to wake up to them in the AM!

    I love peonies too! I haven't seen them around here yet but I can't wait! Your blog is great! Jennifer:)

    I Love Peonies too! So much that I started a Peony Farm in Sequim, Wa.
    Right now the tree peonies are in bloom. With our weather, the herbaceous peonies are very late. Check out my post for the ones in bloom now. I can't hardly wait till Red Charm and Paula Fay opens. They are simply fabulous!
