I feel stupid. I missed my peonies blooming beautifully this year.Last week I took pictures of them still in buds and figured I had plenty of time. Then over the weekend my husband told me to go look at them because they'd bloomed. I forgot five minutes later.
Yesterday I went outside and this is what I found...
Poor, sad, pathetic, sunburnt peonies. Poo. They still smelled lovely but looked so sad with the edges all brown.
Now I'll have to wait till next May to catch them at their finest again. I've thought about moving them closer to the back deck (they're tucked in the corner behind the house and I never see them so I don't think to go look) but I don't know if they'd survive the move. With me moving them, probably not.
At least my daisies and hydrangeas are coming up... dulls the pain just a little bit :)
