Peonies are some of the most beautiful and fragrant flowers on the planet. Growing up, my mother’s peony plants would always bloom on the week of my birthday, in May. They lined our sidewalk and their fragrance hung in the air around our front porch. The lovely scent is nostalgic for me, and I’m so enamored with the flower that I chose peonies for my bridal bouquet on my wedding day.
With that said, I felt that the peonies I planted in the fall deserved their own mini-post. During the second week in March, I noticed shoots coming out of the ground for all of the plants. I documented with a photo, of course. Earlier this week, I walked outside and the peonies are at least a foot tall and counting. I again, documented with a photo. The change is amazing, and so neat to see!
Take a look.
I am crossing my fingers for gorgeous blooms this year. We shall see!
