Every year at about this time, we visit the peony farm. The exquisite beauty that peonies have is very short lived which means that I don’t devote any space to them in the garden; but I immensely enjoy going to see them all flowering en-mass. All the images here are tree peonies including some of the wonderfully scented Rockii varieties. The farm obviously sells peonies, either from the site or on-line; it also makes cosmetics and beauty products from various parts of the peonies. While the peonies are flowering there is a restaurant which today, Sunday was already fully booked when we were there at about mid-day.
It was a gloriously sunny day with no wind, perfect to enjoy the peonies.
Each variety is planted in rows or blocks.
The above looked just like the peonies you see on Chinese fabrics.
Let me know if you want more images!
