I don't know what it is about peonies... They're so beautiful, and they smell so good that I just want to eat them up. Strange, I know!
The blooms were so top heavy that they'd fallen over and the stems snapped. They're on their way out anyhow, but there is one bud opening, and since I'm not one to let these beauties rot on the ground, I cut them off the stem and put them in my favourite vintage McCoy vase.
This way I get to enjoy them while they last! Of course, it also means I'll be a little smarter next year and stake them so this doesn't happen again. ;)
I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish my dear American friends & family a very Happy 4th of July! Enjoy your celebration!
Cheers for now,
