~Peonies~

Now I know you might be sick of looking at photos of peonies, but mine bloom later than most peoples because of our higher elevation, so please indulge me with one more post of these precious blooms:-)

I decided to fill my large urn in the kitchen with more of these beauties in the lovely shade of pink.  Since I spend a good amount of time in this room I can enjoy their beauty and aroma.  I have to say that every time I enter into my kitchen this sight puts a big smile on my face.  Enjoy!  xoxo K. 

I'll be sharing with these parties today:

  5. I could never tire of seeing these beautiful Peonies ~ I didn't get a single bloom from ours this season because of the early frost & freeze we had :( So you go right ahead and show them as much as you want, lol :)

  10. Peonies are everywhere!
    I've seen them so many places. I must research these flowers and see how easy or difficult they are to grow.

    I'm intrigued.

  15. I never get tired of peony pictures, bring them on. Mine were rained out after one great bouquet. I have a tiny picking of the buds that bloomed yesterday and the rain due again tomorrow. 2 days without rain. Mowed the lawn, weeded, tidied.

  27. I would never get tired of seeing pictures of these gorgeous peonies! My mom used to grow them. She had vibrant red, pink and white ones and I loved it when she'd cut a bunch for me to take home. They smell Heavenly! I'd like to grow some in my yard and will check them out this weekend if I make it to the nursery, which I want to do. Thank you for the beautiful pics! Hugs, Leena
