Can you believe our soup is already at the P's????

It is simmering quite nicely and is quite colourful!

That's a very pretty Primrose Kelly, and I just want to bury my nose right into that Peony.

I'm sure everyone will have lots of contributions to "P-soup" today.
Peonies will top the list....this one is a seedling(therefore no name)

Here is a link to Peony abums

Pieris japonica(aka Lily of the Valley bush)- an evergreen shrub that blooms very early in the spring. Many types are well known for the attractive new growth.

Many lovely "P's" to start off the soup. My additions include: Bright Eyes Phlox - just planted, Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis (blooms June thru Sept.) - at least 6 years old, Purple Prince Orienpet - first year.

That's a beautiful seedling Peony Sharon!

Scrap - Purple Prince really isn;t very purple is he? I've got that one, I was disappointed with the colour.

I think the P's will be a very "Pretty" thread. . .
Grannygardner - love your hedge of peonies - I need to invest in some good peony supports. Anybody have any ideas?

Here is Potentella
