My First Peony This Year

     A few days ago I noticed somebody commenting that the best of their peony blooms were over.

     So yesterday when  I found one peony bloom completely open, I thought wow! I finally get to enjoy my own peonies. 

     So without any more fanfare here is my first peony bloom of the year!

Rich lush hues of the peony

And it looks like he has a little brother and a whole lot more baby brothers to come.

     This plant is at least 42 years old. I've had to trim it down to size several times and have given parts away for other people to start a peony of their own.
