Thank you.

I don't have any peonies, but if I decide to plant some this variety would be my first choice. With a name like Scarlett O'Hara, you couldn't go wrong!
Catching up on reading blogs today, your last of May post is exquisite--all the beautiful flowers and foliage in your garden!

Red, red and more red, all captured beautifully. :) It's such an attention-getter in any garden.

When you first open this post and see it against the black background--it is just stunning. Just like Scarlet---bold and brazen.

Welcome Ann! Indeed you have discovered my passions. Is there any lovelier spot than UP NORTH?

Isn't 'Scarlett' lovely, Rose? A must for a peony. I hear you since my life has been hectic caring for my ailing sister. Barely able to post, I have not been able to visit but, trust me, I so enjoy visiting you.

Hi Nancy! Thank you ... delightful to hear from you. My posts aren't showing on Blotanical and don't have time to figure out what to do.

'Bold and brazen' is what Scarlett is all about, Anna. And then the rain hit! Much needed but sad to see her lovely face waning ... other peony faces are in the wings but rain is in the forecast. So goes the life of a gardener!
