Pink Peonies - Memories of New England

Floral Memories of New England

 

pink peony

 

We enjoy having cut flowers in the house, and my wife bought these peonies at the market the other day. We don't tend to see them growing in our area...at least I don't recall seeing them, I think because of the temperatures.

 

But we enjoyed several large gardens of them back in New England in a wide range of colors, and as I recall spent quite a bit of money on them, especially when we lived further outside Boston in the suburbs and had lots of room. And it seems I had a lot more time to garden.  It was one of the things the people who bought our house in Bolton when we moved into the city really loved.

 

Peonies remain a fond memory of New England living whenever I see them.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS  - that is a beautiful flower.  My daughter-in-law loves peonies. She had her wedding bouquet with mostly peonies.  They are lovely.

Hi Jeff,
I love a fresh bouquet of flowers in the house and there is no shortage of flowers this time of year.

We have missed them out here in SoCal Kathy Streib  They were so easy to grow in New England. My favorites were the burgundy with the yellow centers, but I enjoy having the variety. There were critters in the area that loved the bulbs, too! Such a pain!

Good morning Jeff. You are speaking right to me. I have peonies and then peonies to spare.

Jeff each part of the country has its own special beauty.  Glad that some of ours was able to make its way over to your neck of the woods.

What absolutely gorgeous peonies, Jeff! I particularly love the large one - the close-up - that pink is so powerful yet, delicate. Just beautiful!

Hi Ronald DiLalla 

And I bet you enjoyed them pretty well, too! We miss them but there are certainly plenty of other flowers here in SoCal to enjoy!

Me too George Souto  I have seen the typical New England flowers growing here in the mountains where it's cooler. They are fond memories!
