We still have about a month to go before Spring will finally be here, and given the weather we’ve had the last two days it might feel like a long wait! With the windchill factored in it’s currently -16 Celsius or only 3.2 F! Brrrr
Since Spring will soon be here and I’m trying my best to ignore the cold I thought I’d show you one of my favorite spring flowers. Now I think most people think of tulips when they think of Spring. I do too, but for me … Peonies are probably my favorite Spring flowers! Too bad I have to wait until late Spring -almost summer before mine will bloom!
Here’s a lovely almost white Peony called Peony Pecher:
This peony produces large double petaled blooms each June. They are just a little smaller than a bread plate oh and the smell … they have that lovely light peony scent. I just adore these flowers!
Last year I planted three new peony plants in my garden. One is in the front flower bed and two are in my planted boulevard – so if they survived the winter I’ll have 6 peony plants in total! Hopefully I’ll also have an abundance of flowers!
Do you grow Peonies?
