After owning Priscilla the small tree peony for 7 years she has finally decided to flower for the first time. Compared to her neighbour, Cerise Camilla, she is quite pathetic looking. She is so puny her flowers are now dragging on the floor whereas Camilla has been eating her Weetabix and is holding her many heads aloft, big and proud.
Camilla flowers every year and her heads keep getting bigger. This year is a record at 200mm in diameter.
Their friend, the shy Wilma Whitehead, has yet to show her face in public. Perhaps next year!
