I love peonies, they are just beginning to bloom.
You are right Inda, Peonies are just abot ready to open.
Peonies are blooming in my garden as well.
In China, tree peonies have been objects of aesthetic fascination since at least the Sui Dynasty (589-618 CE). Painters and poets have worked to capture the ephemeral beauty of the blossoms. Tree peonies are also used to evoke female nature, love, prosperity and status. To help lighten the cold, dark days of winter, we find ourselves returning to some of our favorite peony poems of Chinese antiquity. Enjoy!
Thank you Vicky for the really nice website. My peonies are blooming as well and they are one of my favourite flowers.
Peonies are opening up. They are a truly beautiful flower. Enjoy them while they last.
The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.
I love all the different peonies. They are just starting to bloom.

I love peonies, but they don't last long. They are almost finished here.
