Oh Peonies

{{...Please excuse my silence here these past 10 days.  I needed to devote a fair bit of time to my treatment protocol last week and decided to take a break from the blog.  I'll try to make it up to you with extra posts in the coming days, so stay tuned for lots of good things...}}


I've been waiting weeks on end for my peonies to bloom.

Two of my three plants have never bloomed before this year and I've been simply beside myself with excitement to see their colors revealed.  Of course, it turns out that these two plants are identical in bloom color, but with such a lovely shade of magenta, who could complain?  And they blend gloriously with my third peony in pure white.

I thought perhaps you'd like to see?


Exquisite, aren't they?

I must've buried my face in these flowers a hundred times in the short week they were in bloom.  I tried to memorize the scent of all their beauty, but they've faded now and already I'm longing for their return.  And even though I've seen all their colors, I'll still be beside myself with excitement come spring when all the buds begin to form again.

Because, really, can you ever get enough of all this beauty?  I know I can't.

  2. @Rachel: That's a lot of exclamation points--but then again, there's a lot of beauty to exclaim over :o). Still missing my peonies but thankful for the pictures to remind me. Love you
