All of these photos were taken yesterday. This last photo is of the first peony to open. Oh heaven. I took a big old sniff of that wonderful scent. The peony above it is just about to open. They are about a week early this year. The yellow rose opened yesterday, along with some red ones. And the poppy…sigh…the poppy. I call it The Peeking Poppy because it hasn’t yet fully opened. Perhaps it’s shy? That shot of orangey color among the other plants is glorious.
And I had to show you the pod. It had just started to fall away from the flower, so I scooped it up.
Ain’t nature grand?
