The Tree Peony looks stunning right now!
This tree peony has travelled a long way with me. I first had it in NJ on our farm, then when we sold the farm I moved it to our last house in NJ and then I dug the poor thing up again and moved it here to Charlotte with us! It has done the very best in NC. I just love the color and the location in my garden. I will be moving it with me when I move to our new home, whenever that is! But for now I hope you enjoy looking at this wonder as much as I have!
This stunning blossom was the best one I think I took tonight. I just love this plant. When we move I will be taking it with us!
I tried something different and took this shot really upclose. It is different but I like it!
I love this blossom because it shows the peony fully open. This one blossom measures almost 10" across!
I stood back and took this picture. These blossoms are truly amazing this year!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
