Oh dear. Sorry to hear that Kerry. It is raining here today but not too hard 🤞🤞

@pelly it’s amazing how fast it turned some flowers to mush. Peonies always look far more robust than they are 😐

@hkyfvr a little rain to save watering is perfect 😛 it’s never just enough though 😅

We had the rain overnight but the storms that changed the weather from hot to cool (7 degrees tonight) was just a few sprinkles. Someone else must have had a downpour. Need to water tomorrow 🤷‍♀️

@hkyfvr that’s cooooold 🥶 least the weather keeps up guessing 😂 never predictable 😜

It sure does. I was so hot yesterday and this morning I went for bloodwork and I was cold with a coat on. Only got to the teens today. Warming up but rain from Friday to Sunday. Yikes 😧😧 Well we will not need to water. 🤷‍♀️ @kez001uk

@hkyfvr I hope you’re feeling ok 💜 sounds like multiple seasons in a week! 😂 we had that last week but hoping it’ll settle now. I have too much work to do out there😜

I am ok thanks Kerry. They just check my blood sugar once a month. So far so good. I think we have a day or two this week we can get out and do some gardening. After that it will be indoor work. Blah. 😔☹️😫

@hkyfvr I’m glad to hear it 🤗 oh no, indoor work can’t compare to being in the garden 😝

Thanks. How true. I spent years trying to keep my house as clean as my Mom’s was. I wish I had gotten into gardening years ago. It would have been so therapeutic for me. Well I am now and that is what matters 👍😍

@hkyfvr thank you Diane ☺️ this must be the stuff the ants like. They’re swarming it now, protecting my only bud 😟

@ukjohnny it’s a beauty isn’t it! I can bet yours has a lot more buds than mine 😜😂

hkyfvr

That is what it looks like. They are attracted to that sweet syrup and as they peel the covering over the bud off to get at the sweet treat they help open the bud. Ants help your lovely buds open up. 👍💕

@hkyfvr I didn’t know they helped open them 😮 thank you for the info, learned something new 😁

Very welcome. Just learned that recently. Ants are good for peonies. 👍😍

@hkyfvr glad to hear they have a positive use but now need more peonies to put all my ants to good use! 😅

Can't wait to see this in bloom. I keep checking mine but haven't noticed any buds yet. Good for foliage but I just needs some buds ♥️♥️

Does yours smell of roses? I don’t know what variety I have, but it looks similar... 💗

@mulberry it does smell of roses, not the strongest scent though 😋 yours certainly looks like this one 😁

I thought so too, although mine seem to have quite a strong scent. They look beautiful anyway! @kez001uk

@mulberry mine might too but hay fever dulls any smell 😜 surprised how big the blooms are though 😍

Oh no, that’s no good! ☹️ I’m expecting mine to do a big flop in the rain - the flowers get so heavy! @kez001uk

I know! Luckily it’s quite gentle rain at the mo, which is good - my garden needs it big time! 🤞🏻😊
