I planted 3 Peonies 15 years ago. They were baby plants put in admittedly lousy soil. It takes a long time for Peonies to establish themselves before they start putting out flowers, but I didn't know it would take this long. They bloomed this year. Hurray!!!

They smell soooooo good. The whole house smells like Peony. My nose itches and my eyes are watering, but I don't care. I have Peonies!

Live long and prosper. \\//


  1. Your back yard looks great, and love those flowers too.

  2. I love peonies ... those are beautiful!!

  3. LOL, I know what you mean! I didn't know it took that long for them to bloom, for years I thought they were broken! LOL. Where do you live? All my blooms have been dead and gone since the end of May!
