There I was...looking forward to getting in from work and seeing if the Peony flower had opened anymore today... it appears to have spontaneously combusted instead 😭 #theresalwaysnextyear

How annoying. I had five little buds on mine, also the first time it's flowered, and now there's only two. Something has eaten into them and left a hollow shell 😒 Mind you I haven't looked today, so there may be nothing left. Your half a one is very pretty though ☺️

Anticipation...😬 Looks like my mystery tree peony is white (no sh*t Sherlock! 😆 But I couldn’t remember what I’d bought! 🙄) it says on the label it’s called ‘Charming Garden’ but I can’t find any info on it. Think I shall call it Mr Whippy 🍦
