My Budding Peony Plants

Peony bud at my cottage this morning after a day of rain yesterday.

My peonies are doing so well this year. This is their third year at my cottage since I dug them up with permission from a lady who was having a garage sale prior to selling a house. She was the daughter of the deceased owner and she said her mother would be pleased someone wanted them. I have three plants and each variety is different. They get so much more sun this year thanks to Hurricane Sandy.

You are so lucky to be able to grow peonies. I have seen a California version at the nurseries, but I'm not fond of the bloom, there aren't very many petals.
Your peony bushes look very happy and healthy. I hope you'll share pictures when they open.

My peonies have chosen to be happy this year. The white ones with the yellow centers usually bloom first. I'll be sure to take photos.

Your house is looking very beautiful for spring:
