I was walking along this traditional Chinese Garden, did you know it was the first one built outside of China?, and I came upon a tree like structure that had, what looked to me, the biggest peony blooms I had ever seen-they were the size of my head! When we left I asked one of the volunteers if it was a peony and she said yes and that was it for me-I was IN LOVE!

I found my own tree peony at a local garden center 3 years ago and it's finally bloomed!! I blogged about it in my YAY for Gardening Post and we've come a long way since then..
Here is the evolution of my babe....
|Here she is as a "bud"|
|I could put my whole face in that!|
|Beautiful sunny day and look at her!|
|Seriously who couldn't fall in love?|
