More Peonies from last Year - in lovely Pink

I somehow missed to show you these blooms as well. I love peonies so very much and tried once to grow them on my balcony - but it was a disaster - not enough sun and probably they are just not meant to grow in a pot.

So the only thing I can do still is photographing them, rummaging again neighbours' gardens and see how lucky they are with their treasures. And - oh my - there are quite a few...

Look at that pollen on the bloom - doesn't it look like pure gold powder? If I only could transfer the perfume via the computer...

Your pictures of both the white peony and this pink peony are beautiful. It's too bad you can't grow them on your balcony.

When I was a kid, we had two peony bushes in the backyard. One was right under the vent from the clothes dryer, and every year it grew twice as big as the other one. So I guess peonies like lots of heat!!

Yes - they do. In my Mom's garden they grew enormously too. One day I will have a garden if the good spirits allow me and then I will grow peonies too!!!
