Peonies Are Here!!!!!








Aren't they just beautiful!! I just love this creamy white beautiful fragrant flower!!!
Their little heads all seem to pop open on the same day.
Just had to show you their beauty!These last two pictures I took when I went for a little car ride ,the orange flower is called a Devil's Paint Brush,and of course just ordinary sweet clover in a tiny zen garden setting,the picture is sweet in its simplicity.

We are finally getting some flowers in our garden its hard to believe because it just never really got very hot yet,everyone here is crying for some sun and some heat.I know most of you ladies of had too much heat and sun.My end of the world is rather cold usually so to get any kind of warmth is so welcomed!

Diane,

My neighbour next door has light pink peonies just about to bloom and I'm going to get some pix to share. I don't think I've ever smelled them before and can't believe that!

I had never heard of the Devil's Paintbrush before but it's a lovely and unusual looking flower.

Thanks for sharing the great photos you take :o)

I have never seen a comp[letely white peony before. The white ones that I have seen have a tinge of pink in the center. Pretty, but that all white of yours is Beautiful...

Oh! Your peonies are gorgeous!
I had a dark maroon one open for the fisrt time, this year. It was a tiny transplant from my Grams.

I'd love to get another white one and a pink one.

Now don't toy with me...teasing me about your colder weather. lol We got in my husband's truck yesterday for a trip to Lowe's and the temperature thingy said it was 106 degrees in the cab. And I felt every single degree on my chubby little body. lol

OMGosh! I just happened to stumble upon your blog from reading the bad hair day post (haha, you n me both!) and as Im scrolling down reading (which, BTW - I LOVE your blog) I find the lil orange flower! I have them in my back yard of ALL places, they are few and far between and we mow them down thinking they are weeds. I ask my hubby ALL of the time if he knows what kind of flowers those are, thinking to myself something THAT pretty can NOT be a weed! And then I get down to your post and see them! Must be some sort of fate that brought me here:)
Thank you so much for posting this as it has been bugging me for 7 years not knowing what they were:)
