Much better!! All the junk has been cut off and clipped up into shreds, left to decompose. I am too
I like my peonies to look a little blowzy. Yes, these really are my peonies. From last June.
Personally, I don't like peonies looking like they are in jail. (No, these are NOT my peonies. Poor little things.)
DH makes the BEEonies. If I were more on the ball I could make sure I tuck the growing stalks into the wings a bit better. If you want one (or more) he sells these for $100 each. They look very cute in the winter too, if you dress them up with tacky, gold garland, or with twinkly lights.
