A Long Wait....

...for my Tree Peony to bloom...


...it's been at least four or maybe even five years....it's a pretty pale pink...BUT...it is not the one I ordered...sigh....which was a red/white variegated one.... I suppose you could say that I got what I paid for...as the source (not a tree peony or even peony specialist) sent a small start...and given my experience with lily bulbs (lilium) from them (not what I ordered), I should have known better....

However, hope springs eternal. I guess I thought I would hit the jackpot and be lucky. Let me just say that with the time involved, perhaps luck is not good enough...and, maybe just maybe, I will finally learn my lesson. Order from reliable sources!

Still....it is pretty and has four buds for its debut (it's just not red and white!)...



*****
Just because....here is the tiny Baby Moon daffodil that I just picked....



You can see the rain on it....it occurred to me that some perspective might help, so the next one has a pencil in it...interesting color (I just grabbed one)...

Despite the difference in color it is lovely;-) I don't have any tree peonies and should add at least one. Where did you say you got yours. Oh, never mind;-) !!
