@Andrew2 Thank you for thinking of us (the country and of us, personally). We are fairly well out of the downtown area here but only less than two miles from where a splinter group of rioters (to differentiate from protesters) raided a cluster of small businesses. There are layers of tragedy in all of this but the one in particular that hits me is that the struggling small businesses being wiped out were serving the very community that has produced the violence. Non-participants in the actions are now without some basic necessities convenient to their homes. Very sad.

Hi Jerry, thanks for these beautiful peonies. So sorry to see that your country is once again facing the venom and bigotry of racism on such a scale. Your own city of St Louis has also been in the news so my friend you and your family are in our prayers. Stay well and stay safe.

Okay. I was just curious if it was the variety my Dad had. Thanks for the info

jerrys

Yes. Most peonies excrete a sap-like substance from the buds. Ants are attracted to it, and in nibbling it up, help open the calyx for the blossom to open.

Isaly

Does that type have a lot of ants crawling around on them? My Dad had peonies when I was a young girl, not this type, but they always had a bunch of ants on them. Before we could bring them in for a centerpiece we had to de-ant them!

@Isaly Thanks. These are gorgeous blooms.

Such a beautiful shade of pink. I love Peonies.

I do love them so, especially the deep red variety, Old Faithful. Well done :)

@mommamid Thank you so much. They grow a bit more spectacular each year, and my grandmother's habit of back-budding them early in the season does seem to produce larger individual blossoms.

mommamid

Absolutely stunning. I think I'd be pleased as punch to have these displayed in my garden. Tfp jerrys
