Anticipation

I've been checking these buds regularly, just waiting for them to burst open so I can bring a big bouquet indoors to enjoy.

Ready to pop


I can almost catch a whiff of that sweet scent...just a few more days now!

Oh, Leslie! You've perfectly captured this bud on the cusp of exploding into flower.

I'm going to make like a parrot and say...very cool photo!

I had to move my peonies before they bloomed because of our landscaping work going on this week. I don't know if they'll bloom now or not, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

Swoon! That's so exciting! We are having peonies at our wedding in October...yes, even in the fall I must have peonies.
