Peony Heaven


peoniesIn our family, when something is abundant we call it _________ heaven.  For the last couple of weeks, peony heaven describes the bounty that has existed in the garden.

Peonies come in  shades of pink ranging from bubblegum pink to luscious fuchsia.

  1. I adore my peonies. They have a really short season here, too; they are already gone in these parts. Yours are gorgeous. Thanks for inviting us for a peek. CherryKay

  2. So enjoyed your pictures of peony heaven. 😊 Mine were here and gone weeks ago in the Midwest, sadly.
