Got home today and noticed my first peony of the season popping out! It was rainy and the branches were bending over from the weight of the rain. When in full bloom this peony bush is amazing!

Yep, there's nothing shy about a peony. [But, where are the ants?:smile:]

I know what you mean. The big black ants were out on the buds that had not yet opened. I will have to get my macro lens out and start chasing them. :smile:

BTW> Looked at this same flower this evening and it is fully open and looking good.

Nice! I've been trying to get peonies here in Tn for 5 years. Never can seem to find them in the stores. Love them though!

Thanks! I really love them. We had this bush for many years. At the end of the season we cut it back to ground level and it comes back bigger and better every year. It is going to be massive this year.
