Flowering mania

     If you never have seen a tree peony, it is hard to believe how large and showy the blossoms are on such a stick like plant. I lost the magenta one last year due to garage construction and heavy handed workers (still sad). The pink one is blooming and it is so glorious! 
     On Memorial Day, I planted my pots and, of course, I ran out of plants as I have many more pots. I planted in the shade of the oak tree.

The peony tree is amazing and so beautiful. Pots....you have got pots! Lots of work...but so rewarding when in glorious bloom.

I plant almost everything in pots or raised beds -- nothing goes into the original soil here (heavy clay) unless we add potting soil to the mix before setting the plant into the hole (and those only happen when DH helps get the hole dug in the first place). Looks like you'll have lots of color as your potted plants grow.

Oh, your delicious tree paeonies are calling to me!!! A friend from many years ago had one in her garden and I was determined to have one some day, that never happened but I'm going to track one down now!!
