Our Pretty Peonies

I love our peonies that come up every year in May! I have to share them each spring! It's been pretty rainy lately, but although the weather can't decide what to do right now, one thing's for sure: the peonies are really doing well!

We have 2 peony bushes now - one in front near the road that's been there for years, and another on the side of the house by the driveway, which we planted maybe 5 years ago or so.


These photos are of the newer peony bush by the driveway. It has really taken off this year! 


This is a photo of the same bush just a couple of years ago when it was first starting to come up in the spring:


It was so little! When I first got this peony bush, I think it was really only one lone peony bloom. At first it would get mowed over, and never really bloomed much. Now we have more pretty blooms like this one in the yard:


It's really similar in color to the one out front. When they first bloom they look like a pretty blush pink. As they open up though, they get white and start to lose most of the pink color.


I think they're prettiest right now, when they're starting to open up. 


It rained today, so they're even sporting tiny raindrops on those petals. They are so nice to come home to everyday!
