Flower Friday - The Peonies Edition!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie, joining with Da DB Boyz to bring you Flower Friday!  This week, our post is all about our Peonies!  Let's head out and see how they're doing!

I checked in on this one a couple days ago:

"Looking good, but not in full bloom yet, Mom!"

Fortunately, there were other blooms that were fully open! Check them out:

We waited a couple days, then checked on that first Peony again -- look at it now!

"Yeah!  Nice and fluffy!"

We like things fluffy around here!

The Peonies we showed you last week were lighter pink, but "singles".  They always open first.  Some of our fuller ones are also lighter pink, like this one:

Mom started all of them from roots a friend gave her, so we don't know what variety any of them are; we just call them "Skidmore" Peonies!

Thanks for joining us - please check out the other Flower Friday blogs out there!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  8. OH, those peonies are gorgeous!!! Misty tried to take a big chomp out of one the other way when we were out walking. Good thing Mom had quick hands to pull her back. We liked seeing the peonies in the wind the other day, but these stills are just beautiful.
