A Simple White Wednesday ....

Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, maybe my most favorite ... I always wish they would last a little longer ... frilly, fluffy, and fragrant.


These three were the last of the white ones ... I was able to photograph them just in time ... the petals were literally dropping off as I took the pictures. Head on over to "Faded Charm" where our hostess, Kathleen has a whole list of scrumptious whites .... happy Wednesday to you!!

  5. I adore them, but am having a slow time getting my starts to bloom, hopefully next year. When I was growing up we had probably 25 plants that lined a retaining wall. It was heavenly. great memories of their beauty and scent. Glad you were able to enjoy them down to the very last.

  8. I love peonies too, but don't have in my yard. Maybe someday.

    There's nothing better than the fragrance of a peony bloom....well except maybe chocolate!

  14. Lovely! A friend picked up some roots at a yard sale last fall and gave me a few. This is the first year, I'm hopeful that I'll see a flower next year!

  18. Hi Jill ~ I adore peonies. Everything about them ~ even the ants:) When my oldest was a toddler he picked a bunch for me and brought them in the house, yup, ants everywhere.
