I cut these peonies because a thunderstorm was coming. I took this picture, because I think they are really beautiful. Hope you like them, too.

Photo Description
I have always loved the sweet fragrance and beauty of peonies. Years ago a friend would bring a bouquet to work for all of us to enjoy. Now I finally have some of my own!

This was a well-traveled peony bush! It was taken from cuttings back in 2005 from a bush in my folk's yard, that in turn had come from my Grandma's yard in Wisconsin, more than 35 years earlier.

The bush is now over 4 feet across and almost 4 feet high. This blossom was so large (almost 6 inches across) and so exquisitely 'pink'. The bright green foliage contrasted beautifully, due to being a bit cloudy that day. I liked it so much I use it as my screensaver.

I always get excited about my first peony bloom of the season. I think they are one of the most beautiful flowers. I wish they lasted longer!

I built the bird house and the little chair. Some years the peonies bloom, sometimes not. Sparrows nest in there.

This vibrant shocking pink peony is a relative of a peony that dates back to WW2. While it isn't as big as my white peonies, this one holds a special place in my heart since it was from my dear mother-in-law's peony that she transplanted from her home during the 40's.

Every spring my peony bush near my driveway entrance at my home has buds on it that blossom into pristine pink blooms that are transparent as the sun catches a petal of the bloom.

I took this in mid-May 2012 as my next-door neighbor's garden had its best peony season ever.

Ooo - I wish I could grow something like that! I don't think peonies do well in the south, tho. Thanks so much for sharing this beauty with us. God bless you.

Beautiful picture! Peonies are my favorite flower because of their beauty and smell, but most of all they remind me of my beautiful grandmother because they were her favorite as well. I have not yet tried to grow them myself. (07/02/2009)

Peonies and ants, what to do? You can't have Peonies without ants, as far as I know from experience. The ants love the sweetness of the budding beauty. Don't let that stop you from cutting them and putting them in a vase. Shake them, gently tape them on the ground or flick those little trespassers off with your finger.

The perfume will fill your room. I've brought hundreds of Peonies into my house and never have I gotten invaded by ants. You might get a few, but they won't overtake the premises. If that bothers you, then put them on a covered porch so you can sit and enjoy their scent.

God gives us all lovely flowers, but sadly HE decided to give us in So.Ca. many plants just as pretty, but no peonies for us. These are pretty enough to eat! Having worked as a floral designer and having peonies shipped in. They didn't have a fragrance after being refrigerated.

I use the typical peony rings to support those big beautiful blooms, but I also use medium size round tomato cages.
