Beautiful and sad all at once. I have waited so long for this to flower and all of a sudden it is gone 😢

About 10 days. It makes me happy they are open and sad they will soon be gone. On the up side all my other Peonies are in bud. @Hellebore

Yes my yellow one has four buds on it and just yesterday I noticed very small buds on the other red rippled one which I'm actually stunned about so I'm very pleased 👍🏼

To cut a lingerie story short. 3rd year for this peony. It was in flower when I bought it but it sulked last year and didn't flower. At the end of the summer it was destroyed by a football and a six year old. I bound the stem and prayed to the flower God 😂. It is covered in flower buds, very early! @bigemrg there is hope for yours yet!

Hehe! A lingerie story eh? 😀 My peonies have all emerged safely in the last week or so, so stage one is complete! Now just got to get them to the flower bud stage! I'll also be praying to the flower God! 😀

Now peonies are one of my favourites, although mine are still not showing up yet. Yours has grow amazingly fast. I'm sure a lingerie story would be very interesting too, but best leave it until after 9.00 pm, lol! 😁

Ha ha ha. I'm sure we've all done it. I've done it all too often. Predictive text on my tablet has a nasty habit of changing "great" to something that would be covered by lingerie! Soooo embarrassing if I don't spot it! 😂

You know we are all typing "great" now to figure out your typo @jeatacake 😏

Ha ha ha, you'll know when you see it! 😉 It doesn't happen now, as it seems to have learnt that "great" is a proper word!! 😕 @carolecuttingitfine
