  7. Looking through your pictures, I could almost feel the fragrance! Wonderful post, it was great to look at so many peonies. I am sorry about your heat wave, I went outside just now and it was so cold I put on a sweater, and then a coat... Send some heat over to us!

  8. OH! Breathtaking! Glorious! I have never seen so many peonies at once. What a wonderful experience. Thank you for sharing it with everyone! Garden Treasure looks as if it were carefully sculpted, then painted with a fine brush. Thank you, Sandra! It is a beautiful post.

  9. Bonjour Sandra...ton reportage est magnifique et les variétés de pivoines sont superbes. J'ai retenu "Treasure garden" pour son originalité.J'espère que cette vage de chaleur qui affecte ton pays s'arrange. C'est toujours inquiétant pour la population.

    Here in Latvia the heat wave is over and we have returned to cold weather (only +15°C), but it's good...
    Yes, the peonies are very, very charming . 'Garden Treasure' and 'Old Lace' are my favorites too.
