My Tree Peonies are Blooming

The tree peonies are blooming so beautifully in my garden right now! I hope you've seen my photos on my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48.

I adore tree peonies and have been collecting them for quite some time. As many of you know, I have a long tree peony border planted in a semi-shade of giant sugar maples just outside my Summer House. Many of the specimens were transplanted from my Turkey Hill garden in Westport, Connecticut and over the years I've added many more - all of them continue to thrive here at my Bedford, New York farm. Unfortunately, the tree peony season is short - only about seven to 10 days, so I make sure not to miss them when they flower. I love seeing their colorful show every year.

Here are some photos, Enjoy.
