The only thing I can come up with is: Gorgeous everything! I'm glad your peonies are still standing. The rain beat mine to the ground last weekend.

What a gorgeous blossom. The colors are very vibrant and beautiful.

I've got tiny buds, but no flowers yet. This is a lovely one. They are not that easy to photograph!

It is a beautiful flower with its jumble of petals. It is a good shot too as that colour is hard to photograph .

Welcome to Macro Flowers Saturday!
Your peony is a beauty, I'm waiting to see ours to open their buds too.

Could you please correct the Macro Flower backlink, its leading to Sara's blog (by mistake, I know).
Have a great weekend!

I have buds that are nearly an inch across, but the species peony at the college is in bloom, as is the fernleaf. Both are earlier than the ones we all know and love.
