Sending wishes for a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to dear yeuxdebleu. Hope you're having a wonderful day, Yeux. I know you are a keen gardener so for your card I've chosen a pic I took some years ago of my favourite flower in our garden. Now the buds on this same peony are beginning to open once more and we can enjoy its beauty all over again:)

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes and what a gorgeous photo. I LOVE peonies and have 15 varieties. I have one that's a delicate pink like this and it's one of my favorites. It's called "Sarah Bernhardt" and here's a pic of it although this isn't my photo. Mine looks a little bit paler pink than this photo.

Thank you for such a lovely birthday greeting.

You're very welcome:) Glad you liked the pic - the peony in your pic looks so similar I feel it must be the same type. I can't actually remember what it was called - such a long time ago and I didn't keep the label.

I only have two others, both a very deep red but this pink one is really my favourite. It almost seems like sacrilege to say it, but I believe peonies even outdo roses when it comes to beauty:)

I quite agree. I love roses, but there are other flowers I love even more...peonies being one of them.

You may very well have the same pink peony that I have. Sarah Bernhardt is one of the oldest hybrids and it's very popular in the US. It's probably very popular in the UK, too.
