A sweet duet singing farewell to another peony season, so brief, so elegant. The tulip stems admonishing the peony with the words of Edmund Waller's "Go Lovely Rose" -

"Then die! that she
The common fate of all things rare
May read in thee;
How small a part of time they share
That are so wondrous sweet and fair!"

The vases are a sweet coupling especially with all that pink. Happy IAVOM.


The tulip heads area great addition - well discovered - and togther this makes a stylish vase

The tulip stems are a clever way to add height and movement. I'm sad to hear that this is your last peony of the season but I hope she has a lengthy reign in her vase.


Lovely peony with a pretty name. Mine lasted less than a week before being destroyed by the wind and rain.

I think your comment is more memorable than my post.

Saw your comment on the Frustrated Gardener and was amazed at your rainstorm.

It always seems like it is windy and rainy the moment the Peonies start to open. Very frustrating after waiting so long for them.

Not too hot and sunny today and tomorrow, so maybe they will last a bit longer. Loved discovering those Tulip stems. I am sure it won't happen again.

I was so surprised to see peonies still blooming here in Denver last weekend (for the Denver Fling).


Would you believe that when I left town on Monday my herbaceous peonies were just starting to think about blooming and the tree peonies were getting going. For once, the cool weather was appreciated as I've never had tree peony blooms last so long.
