Geoff and I moved to our present house in December 2013. Starting from scratch it's been a huge challenge but we love it.

A day of rain today. The peony flowers have closed right up again, saving them from the rain

@pelly @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom this peony is over four feet tall! Crazy, each stem has at least seven buds on them

Definitely crazy but it's going to look amazing. My Bowl of Beauty is going to flower for the first time this year 💗💗💗

I can hardly wait to see this in bloom. I've got one but it won't flower this year as I only planted it last year. The foliage is looking strong though 💕💕💕💛
