Peonies and the Rain

Luckily, I was able to cut these beauties before the big rains started.  I knew a storm was coming and as usual the peonies were blooming.  It always happens.  I think the heavy humidity before a storm helps to open the buds.  I wrote a post about this very same thing in 2007.  See it here.   And seven years later, it's still frustrating me.  Besides the rain, I am fighting rose bugs, which I have never had a problem with.  I guess I'll have to be grateful for being able to save a few to bring in the house.  Regardless, of how  many I had for my indoor vase , the fragrance was fabulous!!

All of us who grow peonies seem so surprised when the rain knocks down the pretty blooms! You'd think I would have learned by now to bring some inside. Next year, I swear.
