Peonies on Parade - 1

Posted by Picasa

This photo of a Peony bud was taken April 23, 2010. I have a total of four Peony plants on the south side of my house. I transplanted them from my front yard when I moved there nine years ago. I had never dealt with Peonies before and followed the directions for transplanting religiously. I must have done something right, because they not only bloom early, the blooms are huge. I will take a photo every day until they bloom and you can seem them in all their glory! This is a series of post I will create in honor of National Garden Month.


  1. Oh, wow, that's exactly what my peonies look like now, and we did the same thing. We had peonies in our front yard when we moved into our house, but we moved them to the south side of our house, where they go crazy every spring. Nothing like the smell of peonies when you walk past them (unless it's hyacinths, of course).

  2. Yes I love the smell! Patiently waiting for them to bloom!
