... Look! My Peonies are in Full Bloom!

Hello dear friends, hope you're enjoying a beautiful Easter weekend so far!
I wanted to show you my (tree) peonies, that are in full bloom at the moment! They sure love me :) I had transplanted them from my old garden when we moved (the keen gardeners out there know that peonies don't like at all to be moved!), and even if in pots and on a balcony, they are now gladdening my heart with plenty of big, wondrous flowers! 


I love to arrange flowers I grow, and being able to do that now that I'm living in a flat with no garden, is such a joy! The white hellebores come from my old garden as well. I had many plants with memories attached in that garden... it was painful to leave them there! But I had to let them go... The memories are still with me.




Happy Easter everyone! Don't eat too much chocolate :)

    1. So we share the same passion for gardening :) These peonies are tree peonies, they are early bloomers compared to the erbaceous varieties...

    1. Gosh, daffodils on the Cape must be amazing... I have never seen them when I visited, but have enjoyed wondrous, enormous rhododendrons, azaleas and Rosa rugosa in full bloom... it was spectacular.

  7. Monica, when I saw the title of your post in my blogroll I knew I had to pop right over. I have peonies, not the tree variety, and they are just starting to break through the soil. Funny you should refer to moving as I am house-hunting now. I'd be sorry to see my peonies left behind, but know they could still be blooming decades down the road. Your photos are gorgeous. Happy Easter to you!
