Didn't do a lot in my garden today, kept raining this afternoon. Planted out courgettes, cucumbers, squash and the rest of the runner beans. Did some weeding. Went to dentist this morning and made strawberry jam. Didn't rain this morning of course.
Gorgeous colour that peony Birdy. Shines out of the photo. Worth the wait! Mine aren't out yet, but I don't have a red one.
Thanks Verdun. I looked them up and Orion looks lovely. I'll look out for it when I'm in England 2nd half of June.
My lithodorea died but then I read that they like acid soil and I'm on limestone.
Amazing, and they say peonies don't like their roots disturbed!
Salino, I have granium sanguinium and it has deeper cut leaves than the French Rozanne. The Rozanne isn't such a tidy mound either.
Thank you Marion, I enjoyed this thread, looking forward to the next one.
Mine are getting pretty deep pink flowers now. I would feel pretty cross about your order, and they took a long time to send them.
The Rozannes in France are more purple than blue, without much of a white middle. I wonder why they should be different here?
Yes, especially lonely on winter evenings, but I'm fine now.
I tried enlarging the picture as John said, and it worked. Looks as though there is a lovely new bed to plant.
Gorgeous tree peonies, incredible centres.
