Perfectly Pretty Peony

Here's the flower from the Peony bud I posted on the 28th of May.  It seems to take a long time to flower!  But it was worth the wait!

  1. Lovely bloom, Robin. In my experience, they don’t last for long, so if you’ve got either a small flat water container or one of those globe-like glass containers with an open top, you can just cut it off, with about a inch of stem, and float it on water indoors … a pretty, if impermanent decoration.

      • They don’t stay in the bloom after it’s opened. I don’t know why.
        Incidentally, did either of you see Merle Plagge’s shot of a double peony on Ipernity? I don’t know whether this will get you in, but give it a try: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/507791/33189399
