Peony Season Ends

These are the final peonies from my garden.  I'm going to miss these showy pink ballet tutus that make your heart skip a beat.  The season is definitely too short.


  1. They are just lovely. I can see why you are sad to say goodbye to them......

  2. Margie:

    you can keep the unopened ones in the refrig for about 4 weeks, take out when ready and put in water— they open eventually. I've done it with mine and now have some after all the rain.


  3. Cris, I had heard that you could refrigerate them, but I picked mine as soon as they were ready and luckily it rained only when I had buds. Must plant more for next year.

  4. Margie, you're right about one thing! these flowers don't last as long as we would like!! they're so beautiful!
    and I gave my daughter your Almond Coconut milk Risotto pudding recipe ..she loves all the natural I will have to get back to you on how I like it..LOL and lastly, your painting of your pet is wonderful...hope to see more paintings...
