    nice irises and peonies, Ron

    Do find it necessary to 'cage' the peonies to prevent them from flopping over?

    I do have cages on them but they are much wider than any cage I can find. They were there when I moved in 20 years ago and were fairly large then

    Great looking blooms, Ron. Thanks for posting them. I never have much luck with peonies here. They turn brown very quickly after blooming.

    Cheers,

    Lovely peonies and I don't think I've ever seen a purple & white iris like yours! Thanks for sharing.
