A Plethora of Peony

It's not only the official state flower of Indiana, it's also one of my favorites. Something the original owner and I share in common. Mrs. Kurtz left us a beautiful legacy of peonies. Lots and lots of peonies. Here are samples of what's in bloom this week.





And my absolute personal favorite, which I consider an "antique pink", below. Not in full bloom yet, maybe tomorrow.

Thank you Mrs. Kurtz.

You are so lucky to have these. I love peonies. I only have two varieties, like you...I inherited them.

Beautiful.
I don't have any, but I admire my neighbor's from afar.
And they get so BIG!

I love peonies, too, and I wish I had some. All in good time, I guess. Yours are beautiful!
