A Lovely Display

Yesterday we had rather wet and windy night, so when I got up this morning I found that one of the branches of my tree peony had keeled over. The peony is absolutely covered in blooms this year and I found that once I cut the blooms off the branch has recovered slightly but it will need a good prune later on this year.

As a result I now have this gorgeous display on my mantelpiece to enjoy. Most of the blooms are pretty blown but they should last a few days.

Lovely flowers, Karoline. At least this foul weather is good for something, then :o)
Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, thanks for sharing ;)

OOoo, very pretty! I would love some yellow ones, but only have dark pink - and one small bush that has white with red streaks... gotta get some yellow after looking at yours!

Karoline - Thanks for sharing your peonies. I adore them, but they won't grow here in FL, so I am resigned to sigh over others....sigh....

OH!!! Peonies are my favorite spring flower :) They are so lovely! And these are spectacular! Yellow is "one" of my favorite colors and these are just wonderful!
Makes me sad...we moved last spring and I had to leave my peonies because they were in full bloom...I'd like to go back and dig up a root of them all...but :(
