Gratuitous Domestic Posting (TM) - Peony-Blogging Division

Here's a little something to start off your Thursday - the flagship peony in my garden:

The Henry Brockstoce (Bockstoce 55)

As you can see, the flowers are quite large. They sit on long stems which, fortunately, are very strong, so that the flowers remain upright even at full bloom.

I have one specimen. It sits right in the middle of the row and, as I say, seems to stand out as the leader amidst all the whites and pinks around it.

Yips! for the picture to Nicholls Gardens where I buy my stock. I recently rediscovered that they had a peony photo page, so in addition to this one you can see genuine pictures of the Angelus and Gold Standard that I have.

Very, very nice.

Will the abusive gardening posts ever stop? My peonies are weeks away from blooming and, although I could swear that I planted a red one about 5 years ago, they are all pink and white.
So bad for my self esteem, but I can't seem to stop reading your garden posts....

Just think of the payback when all my little flock are burnt out and yours is just coming on!
