Peony's Envy 3.0 2016

Each year here in the Gardens at Waters East it is so easy to see the envy in the eyes of visitors during the month of June.  This past month was no exception.  It was apparent the level of envy  - Peony’s Envy - when viewing the fantastic colorful and really big blooms.  As the saying goes – size matters!  I can testify to that – and so can the visitors who walked the paths last month.  Need I say more?

If you have Peony’s Envy you may want to turn away.  You might rate this as only suitable for mature audiences.

Your comments are always welcome.


  1. Thanks for your comment!
    So many beautiful peonies you have! I have never seen so many different flowers on peonies.

  2. Herzlichen Dank für deinen netten Kommentar.
    Du hast so viele schöne Phäoniensorten, ich bin begeistert.
    Ein schönes Wochenende wünscht

  3. WOW!!!! Amazing pictures of these gorgeous flowers.

  4. Peonys are "the best" - at least the few days in bloom. You just have to love them. No "real" garden without them. But on the other hand, no "real" garden if ONLY peonys...?
    Thanks for visiting my blog and I enjoyed your nice and welcoming site. With you a wonderful weekend! ♥

  5. What a fantastic blooming of yours peonies. They are adorable like prima donnas with large dresses with delicate ruffles. I hope the rain does not destroy the beautiful flowers.

    Have a nice day! /Hans

  6. Gorgeous peonies, my only wish is they lasted longer. You have a wonderful collection.
