Flag Day!

Hopefully you knew it was Flag Day, already! We put our flag out this morning, as did several of our neighbors.
Oh look! For the first time in three years, my peony is blooming!

gorgeous peonies Karen- mine are not close to blooming- I am not a very good gardener- I think they need more TLC than what I give them.

Happy Flag Day.
I do stop to see you regularly just haven't had much time to make a comment. Hope all is well with you and yours.

Regards,
Anna

Your peony is gorgeous! Hope there are many more blooms to come.

I've been away for a few days, and you've been busy posting, Karen! More great photos, and thanks for the Flag Day reminder - I didn't know! On your peonies - do you know that if you keep them planted in the ground - in a pot - and bring them in over the winter they will bloom better? They absolutely don't like to be repotted and if they are it can take up to 2 years for them to bloom, so I learned from the local master gardeners this trick - and it works!
Cheers!
