We have several peonies in our front garden. It’s a fairly shady garden and ours are typically a week or so behind other neighbourhood peonies. I’ve been following the progress of the bloom cycle for the first of them and I took this shot yesterday.I just love how bright and showy they are. It’s going to be another few days before another of them is ready to burst. We will still have blooming peonies when they are well spent elsewhere in the neighbourhood.
