    • Many thanks, Ben. I was spoilt for choice with regard to the wonderful colour combinations on display! I really like the softer colours – the pinks, lemon-yellows, and creamy-whites.

  1. I have not come across many Peonies in my lifetime. I did recently in a small cafe. Each of the tables had a vase and pale pink peony in it. They are so beautiful!

    • They are quite hard to grow – being slow to establish, I believe. I saw lots of them yesterday at a favourite arboretum and flower garden I like to visit. They were such a wonderful sight – the size and colour of the blooms almost knocks you off your feet! One wonders how the slender stems are able to support such huge blossoms. There are many different kinds, from the big ‘blousey’ ones like this, to simpler but strongly coloured ones, and there are also the tree peonies.
