I thought I’d follow the theme that Natalie started with her post in Cork Town and the Don River Post for the weekend Coffee Share.

These flowers are amazing.  Starting off like miniature golf balls, and then an explosion into beautiful colours as they enfold.  The wind is unwelcome as it batters the long stalks trying to pry the petals away.  If these were fireworks then peonies to my mind would be the rockets.  Short big bursts of powerful colour.

Our garden is starting to explode along with neighbours gardens. Mid June is an amazing time for colour.

  1. Lovely. I adore peonies, but given we don’t have spring here in south east Queensland (nor much of a winter) they don’t really grow here.


    1. I wish I’d been organised to track the same flower, but had to cheat. The neighbours garden had the closed flower and our garden provided the other two.


  2. Hi Alex,
    Yea – June can be such a great time for gardening and wild colors.
    For my last few June’s it’s been a battle instead — me against the gophers who are determined to fill my yard with their craters and piles of soil pushed up from down where I need it to stay.
    Sigh – it all makes for some great “mighty gopher hunter” jokes.


  3. Thank you for sharing your burst of colour! Our balcony garden is quite bare at the moment – too much rain so I think everything has drowned – so I am very happy to the blooms from your garden.
