  5. Witaj!
    Cieszę się, że u Ciebie wszystko w porządku...
    Twoja nieobecność podyktowana była obowiązkami.
    Uwielbiam piwonie za ich kształty, kolory i zapachy.
    Twoje zdjęcia jak zwykle są bardzo piękne.
    Serdecznie pozdrawiam:)

  7. I would guess that the one with pink smudge is "Festiva Maxima". A favorite since the 1850s!

    1. That's a good guess probably! This peony has been growing in my family garden since I was a child, so this could be 'festiva maxima' variety. Currently, noone in my family remembers the name of its variety.

      Thank you :)

  11. Gorgeous peonies! I remember peonies where popular flowers to grow back in my native Ukraine, but here in California they don't grow so well and I don't see them often.

  12. Lovely peonies, so beautifully photographed :)
    I have two varieties of peonies in my garden, the first one, a red peony, is about to start to bloom now.
