Peonies

The very first time I saw a peony, I thought it was a rose.  My father-in-law corrected me and told me all about them. :-) 
 
 I love love love peonies! 
They're so beautiful and fragrant.
   These peonies are from my mother-in-law's garden, now our garden.  You see, Hubby and I summer in his childhood home (now our home).
  The peony plants are so old.  Hubby helped me divide them this year. 
 I just wish that peonies would bloom throughout the summer...sigh!
Phoebe loves them too!
