Peonies from the city park;

My friends must have realized that this post is another series from our city park :-) 
There is a peony's section in the park and we can enjoy many kinds in full bloom now. I learned from the pc-site that they are originated from China. I wonder if you can enjoy this flower in your country. Like cherry blossoms, their blooming period is short (or transient), which I feel makes this flower more precious.


This old type Japanese thatched house is for exhibiting purpose.


















       I'm linking this post to 
Mosaic MondayOur World Tuesday  and  Nature Notes.

I hope I could send you a bit of Japanese atmosphere.
Thank you very much for stopping by;

Wow I really like your city park! The flowers are so beautiful. They must take such good care of their plant. And I love the Japanese house very much! Beautiful thatched roof.
Have a lovely Sunday, Miyako san :-)

Your park is gorgeous, my dear friend! I think if I were ever to walk through it, it would take me a long time because I would have to so often to admire the beauty. And thank you for your very kind comments on Facebook!

Dear Miyako,

How really gorgeous this park must be - the peonies are beautiful and thanks for sharing. I can't grow the peony here - but like to treat myself when I see them in the shops.
You asked about the writing, I did do it. Many thanks for visiting me dear friend and hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
Sending hugs from NZ, your friend

Hello Miyako,
The peonies are lovely, I think they are very luxurious when seen in a big bunch. Friends of ours grow them on a large section at the back of their home - they used to export them but I'm not sure whether they still grow them commercially now.
Many thanks for sharing these photo's.

I love peonies! We have them in Finland too. They usually blossom in June here. Thank you for sharing your wonderful peonies.

Barbara F. said...

Oh yes, Miyako, I enjoy them and adore them, too. My favorite flower. Only reason I do not plant them in my yard is that they are so sweet they attract ants! We have a problem wit them as it is here. xo

So many beautiful peonies in your park, doubles and singles. I have quite a few peonies in my gardens for they're a cottage favourite as seen by old farmhouses with a big clump outside the front door. I love it when mine are blooming and I cut some to bring indoors for a fragrant bouquet.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Miyako,
What a lovely and very healthy peonies you show us here. We do have several peonies but it is a struggle because of the summer heat.
Love the thatched roofing but it is fully overgrown with mosses...
Hugs,
Mariette

Gail Dixon said...

They remind me of cabbage roses. So very pretty. Your photos brightened this dreary morning here in the States, Miyako. Hope you have a great week!

EG CameraGirl said...

WOW! So many beautiful varieties!

Ida JT said...

Konnichiwa, Miyako-san!

I hope you are enjoying the spring season. Many beautiful flowers are in bloom like the pretty peonies on the photos! The house in the park is very interesting because of the plants planted on its roof!

I hope you and your family are doing fine. Take care :)

We had peonies in our garden in Oregon (before we retired and sold the house). You are absolutely right -- the flowers that bloom fleetingly are all the more precious! These are beautiful -- that is a lovely Park!

Karen said...

Wonderful place, gorgeous photos.

Rostrose said...

Dear Miyako,
I am back from my short vacation and would finally like to thank you for your kind words and greetings in my blog! Your peonies-photos are very well done and beautiful. We have also peonies in our garden but at the moment they aren't as mature as the peonies in your park.
Hugs and greetings from Austria,
Traude

WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS

Roan said...

Beautiful peonies. I would like some of that Japanese atmosphere. I bet the fragrance is amazing.

Rambling Woods said...

Oh my. How varied and beautiful they all are. I have a place in my heart for the peony as we had one next to our porch in my childhood home. My Mother would sit and work on her bonsai there. She grew bonsai for many years. It is a heart break for me that she had a house fire shortly before she became ill and died so I did not get any of her bonsai. Thank you for linking into Nature Notes... Michelle

Oh my, the peonies are gorgeous. How lovely to see so many in one place. We have peonies here in my part of Canada, but they won't be blooming for another month or so.

I like peony flower. There are some colors in your picture but there is only one crimson peony in my garden.
I got it from my mother-in-law and whenever it blooms I remember her.
Have a nice day!
