It's my birthday, and I am celebrating with peonies.
The end of last week, we had more than 2 inches of rain, in 48 hours. 
The gardens were well watered...
Yesterday morning was sunny,
but there was dew on the peonies.
And everything else, I suppose...
Is there anything better than dew on peonies?
I am linking today's post with Nature Footsteps Blo-Ma.

Ours aren't bloomin' yet but they will be soon. They're gettin' all soft and puffy like marshmallows.

Hi Judy, i am about to reply with your comment in my site, but opted to look for your country first as you said hoyas are not popular there. However, there is nothing in your blog ABOUT you, nor your whereabouts. Hoyas are popular around the world even in very cold climates, so maybe you just haven't known where they are!

Oh Happy Birthday To You.

I love peonies. They are such the awesome flower of color delight and design.

We were driving from my daughters home and I noticed such plentiful
Peonies at homes but the sad thing is one rain and they lie on the ground.

Do people not consider that they are such a weak of a flower to stand with rain and wind that they would not steak them up some how or tie them. My Mom did..

There they were mostly smashed on the ground. Do you have a way so they don't get destroyed?

Well Happy [belated] Birthday! I just love peonies. My original bush died a few years back. We planted a new one 2 yrs ago but so far no flowers. I have read it can take 3 yrs so next yr, well it better bloom!
