The Peonies Are Back - Spring 2020
A series of garden diary posts that I've been sharing for ten years now features the moment when our peony plants emerge from the mulch each Spring. The first time I posted photos of the redish buds was all the way back in 2010 here.
From then, I've posted about this:
2011 peony post
2012 peony post
2013 peony post
2014 peony post
2015 peony post
2016 - doesn't appear that I posted
2017 - one of our foster peony plants in Naperville
2018 - one of our *new* Downers peony post
2019 peony post And another one here.
That's 9 of the past 10 years. Including this year, that makes 10 of 11 years.
This peony in the photo is located back by our Dawn Redwood - it is a 'teardown peony' - either from our house before they tore it down or from The Fox Family Den's yard before they built their own house.
