I have been a long time fan of Peonies long before Instagram and bloggers made them the "It" flower. My Nana and Mom introduced them to me a long time ago. Fun fact, when Aaron and I were looking at houses I would always count how many Peony bushes each house had. It might have had a tiny influence on which house we ended up with, haha!
Our house has 6 Peony Plants ranging in colour, type and size. Some of the plants are quite young and only produce a few blooms, and some are quite a bit older and produce a ton of flowers!
Can you spot the Bumble Bee? I love that these flowers attract these little guys!
If you have been following me on Snapchat (kastlescamponi) you will see how every time there was a thunderstorm I would run out into my yard to save my Peonies. I love filling my home with these beautiful flowers (but I still like to leave some out for those Bees). You will also see how I found a lady who has 11 Peony Plants lining her fence and another who had their whole backyard filled with Peonies! #LifeGoals.
My Peonies all bloom at different times which is nice. These beautiful Pink and White Peonies are the last to bloom. According to this Peony List they are either called Show Girl or Bowl of Beauty Peonies, I am not quite sure.

Sadly most of my Peonies are all done for the season. At least I have 6+ rose bushes to enjoy for the rest of the summer! Do any of you have Peonies in your yard?
