Everyone's pictures are so beautiful. I thought I would join in and post a pic of a peony from my grandmother. Sorry name is unknown.

That's a very nice peony Cheryl. Does it get lots of blooms?

Thanks Lyn and Kelly for the comments. Yes this particular plant does produce quite a few blooms every year. However the first couple of years I would get only one or two blooms for the season. She's a real gem now though.

Lulu, you’re welcome and hope you can copy it.

Kat, I especially like flowers that have been handed down from generation to generation. Your Festiva maxima is just beautiful.

Neng - portulaca is an annual. It self seeds nicely and it does well in hot dry areas.

Greg, love your pond!
