Here is a lovely Peony with a hungry bee in Carol O. yard.

Here are a few pictures of flowers blooming in my yard.  The first one is just a regular lily.  The next two show something new I got this year, It's called Hollyhock Malva.  It is a perennial but I have it in a pot.  The last picture is a red coneflower, also new to me this year

Here is a Jackmani Clemantis that has lived in my garden for many, many years, I think over 25.  Sharon

Well, the story I have to tell is about the yellow peony.
I have had it in my yard for 3 years.  I didn't know it would take that long to finally bloom.  The garden center where I bought it didn't tell me that.  When I was close to my 1 year warranty, I contacted them. She said next year it will bloom.  When I was coming up to its 2 year anniversary, I called them again.  She said third year is the charm. Told me I would have 2 or 3 blooms next year & then more each year after that.  Well, she was right.  My first year of blooms & I had 3 of them!  So, be patient if you really want a yellow peony!
