This is my Peony


This is my peony - excuse the bin but the front garden is the only place to keep such a huge monstrosity and the council won't take your rubbish if you leave it out in bags *sigh*

Now where was I? Oh yes, this is my peony. Isn't it just beautiful? Every year it gives us the most beautiful blooms and every year, just as they are all open and reaching perfection it rains. I mean it usually hammers down and the blooms fill with water and droop down and touch the ground. This makes the edges of the petals go brown and - to quote my eloquent daughter - "go manky".

I was fortunate enough to have my camera in my hand when I opened the door and saw the first flower opening. I took its picture in the hope that this will cause the rain to hold off until at least the first petal falls.
