PASSION FOR PEONIES............................


I love peonies

They are only available in AZ for a short period of time.  I don't believe they can be grown here because of the immense heat during the summers and because of our low humidity...although what do I know, since I have never grown any. lOl


Found this beautiful bunch at my local Trader Joe's for $6.99 a bunch.  That is a great value since they are $10.99 to $12.99 everywhere else.  I buy them when I see them come in as they are not here for long.....and nothing makes my heart sing like PEONIES.

  4. I love peonies too. They grow extremely well here on the prairies -- June is peony month. I've never seen them for sale in any florist's shop because they are so common that everyone has their own!

  5. They are such incredibly beautiful..and once you shake all the ants out...you can bring them in and dry them. I had tons of bushes at the lake and then we had some major construction done and I lost them, I really miss their beauty.

  6. Ours are a little slow here -- I always end up leaving them outside because I bring in ants with them! But I love them so much!

  7. Dearest Jo...Peonies are one of my favorites too.
    I recently moved and had to leave mine behind...
    I'll miss them come June...they do pretty well
    here in Southern Wisconsin. And we have some very
    hot and humid weather...just in case you decide to
    plant some? :) I just make sure they are watered
    well when the rains don't come.
