We were invited to a wedding in Salmon Arm over the weekend and I kept an eye on my peonies hoping they would bloom a week or two ahead of our departure or wait until we returned. The day we headed out I woke up to the first buds opening.
Being the peony fanatic that I am, I cut a few and took them with us. They didn’t like the heat in Salmon Arm but I enjoyed them nonetheless.
Of course I was eager to check them out when we returned yesterday. And I was not disappointed.
I have several plants with these bright pink blooms but only one with the pale variety.
And I must admit that I love the pale pink best.
I snipped off a few of the flowers to enjoy in the house.
Part of me wishes I had an abundance of plants but the other part of me knows that I wouldn’t be able to properly care for them. I’ve tried that before. So I will enjoy the ones I have and look forward to next year’s blooms.
