What a difference a day makes

Tree Peonies might not flower for very long but when they do, wow! The before photos are good, but scroll down to today's ones. We had terrible winds yesterday and last night and feared they would be shredded before they opened. Each bloom is nearly 12" across.
The normal peonies won't flower for another couple of weeks at least. I've uploaded the large versions to fill your screen if you care to click on them.


  1. Beautiful! Peonies and iris always make me think of my Grandma. I miss her and her garden.

  2. I can't even imagine a bloom as big as 12" across. Are these fragrant like the bush variety? They are just beautiful.
