Yesterday morning I cut the first peony flowers of the season. It is a beautiful bright pink color.   I think will be the earliest peony season we have ever had.  The warm weather we have enjoyed all spring is definitely helping our peonies to bloom.  I don't know the name of this flower but we suspect it might be Big Ben or Detroit.   My husband bought the roots from an older friend of his who brought the roots with him from Kentucky when he moved to Michigan in the 1960s.

I'll post more photos fo the flower when it opens.  And if anyone has an idea of what the name of this peony variety is I would love to know.

Peony Season

While driving around town I have noticed several peony bushes that are close to houses in full bloom.  This usually means that ours which grow in the open field unprotected are about a week to 10 days off.  We have been expecting an early season this year due to the warm weather we started having in March. 

I am guessing that the peonies will be in full bloom either just before Memorial Day weekend or if not then they will start popping sometime over the Memorial Day Holiday.

We realize this makes it hard to plan but the peonies are a product of Mother Nature and there is not much we can do except wait for them to make their appearance.
