Late PEONY Harvest

Just harvested these "late" Pink Peonies~ All of these blooms are from only 2 plants (and there's over 40 left) that are growing on the north side of the house so they bloom much later than the other peonies. I'll make bouquets with most of them and dry the rest~

Mmmmmmm they smell Wonderful!!


  1. Just Gorgeous!! I can almost smell them. I don't have any peonies growing but my neighbor does and they are a beautiful red.


  2. Oh how beautiful!!! I used to live in Mass many years ago and we had peony bushes....they are beautiful and I sure do miss them!!!!

  3. I can almost smell them...Really lovely!!Warmest Regards,Cat

  4. Those blooms are just awesome.. How do they dry? I have never tried drying them..

  5. Hi Maggey~
    You can bunch a few peonies together and hang them to dry or lay them flat to dry. The key is drying them before they open up too much and fall off the stem. You also want to make sure they aren't in a damp area or else they tend to brown~ Have Fun!!
