Planting three sad looking peony plants last year was one of the best things we did.
Two are pink and the one shown above is actually deep burgundy. I don’t know why it looks pink in the picture.
We bought these at the end of the season last year and all three looked half dead. We left them in pots for a while, trying to decide where to plant them. We were out of space and thought about planting them by the driveway in front of the house but decided to plant them in the back yard where we spend more time.
Vince said this morning that he was surprised they even lived because they looked so bad when he planted them.
This one is right by the edge of the patio and Oscar and I stop and smell it every morning.
The other two are by the shop – one on each side of the walkway going to the door. They haven’t bloomed yet. They get a bit less sun that this one does but my guess is they’ll be blooming by tomorrow.
So pretty and they smell so good!
