"Meet Coral Sunset..."

...a perfectly petaled peony from the infamous Blumen Gardens
(a little slice of gardening paradise) right here
in Sycamore Illinois...:)
Happy Blooming Tuesday y'all!

What a beautiful color. My soul would like a steady diet of these. Maybe they wouldn't be as exciting if we had them all the time, sort of like dessert.

Oh Margaret, I love this one. That is my favorite color. I was at a garden place last week that had hundred of peonies. This one is similar to one they had that was more open in the center with yellow in the center. Had never seen one like it. My fave color
