Peony blooms

Only one of the peony roots I planted weeks ago has sent shoots up.   It’s fun to watch it slowly inch it’s way up.  Impatient for blooms,  I also planted a few more peonies.  I’m loving my morning walks around the yard to greet my plants.

First up:  Tom Eckhardt Peony I love the yellow in the center on this variety.  So beautiful.

The second to bloom is a Karl Rosenfield Peony.  I’m excited to watch it open completely.

Lastly, a Shirley Temple peony which has yet to unfold.

Dare I admit that I’d buy at least a dozen more if my budget would permit?
