Thankyou Katarina:-), I've just googled and think you're right, it looks exactly the same, I'll give it a name now.

Your peony will bloom more now, if you call it by its name :)

Hopefully Katarina,lol, forgot just how gorgeous this peony was, thanks for reminding me :-) it won't be long before it flowers again :-)

I have the same :) Also Sarah Bernhardt. I recommend you that - it is georgious - big flowers, last long and smells nicely too.

Thats really strange Katarina as I have Sarah Bernhardt too I bought it at the same time as this one, got to be my favourite, covered in sooo many flowers every year and yes the scents amazing :-),even remember where I bought them it must have been 10 years ago now we'd taken the kids to Elsham Hall,a really lovely place with lots of animals and a big lake, they used to love it there:-) and there was a small nursery where I bought my peonies :-)

Sounds like a place which I would like too. Can you make sometimes a blog about that place? That would be interesting.

Ages since I've been Katarina the kids are all grown up now, suppose we'll have to wait for grandchildren to take now,don't think we had a digital camera then, so no piccies on the computer, I'll have to search through my photos to find any, boxes full of them though really must get round to sorting them into albums :-))

I see. OK. Do you remember the name of that place?
