OOOOooo errrrr, is the title of this blog a bit cheeky? Forgive me if you think it is, but I really do feel I should share this with you! Photo’s of plants, flowers and such like are normally not my style, however these big blooms have won me over, so have decided to change my blogging rule, just this time!
When I went out to my car this morning the Peony’s blooms were so massively heavy they were bobbed right down to the paving slabs in front of the car, so decided to cut just the ones that were in danger of being driven over. I know they don’t seem to last a minute once cut, not that much longer on the plant. I was almost feeling a hero for saving these from almost a definite squashing!
I almost climbed aboard this Peony to get this shot….
There are still plenty of flowers on the plant, ranging from ABSOLUTELY HUGE, to solid hard round buds… Scroll down and see. They are so amazing I have given them all names…. Biggy, big girl, fluffy, extra fluffy, flouncy, bouncy…. okay, sorry, getting a bit carried away and confirming my bonker-ness..
I have an exceedingly tall glass vase which is perfect…. what d’ya think?
And… this last photo before I pass out with enthusiasm, just to show you how GIGANTIC the blooms really are… Please excuse toes, maybe I should have bought some pink nail varnish and taken a glam shot here instead!
Bye for now Jay, X
