Foto finish--Pink

Pink

This is from my peony bush.  I love peonies and wanted one so my parents got me one for my birthday two years ago.  These are beautiful flowers just not what I asked for.  I told the person at the reputable garden center I wanted an old fashioned large full petaled dark or light pink peony.  She was said I would love this new variety, it gets beautiful pink petals.  It does its just is not a nice full peony like I wanted.  Of course I did not know until it bloomed months later.  I live in a town home so there is really no place to plant another one.  Oh well it is beautiful.

These pink and white striped phlox gound cover are some of my favorite spring flowers.

Oh,, know exactly the ones, we have the old pink and the white with light pink edges. They have been on the farm as long as I can remember and probably plus. I will have to photo them when they bloom.

I love peonies but it doesn't get cold enough where I live to be able to grow them. They need a cold winter.

Lovely peonie! I'm not sure if I have ever seen one 'in person', but that one is cool. :D

I know nothing about flowers...I just know that is beautiful and belongs on a quilt.
