Wow that is early! Beautiful. Enjoy!
You've just reminded me; I used to have some here. I wonder what happened to them. Beautiful flowers... so fleeting.
Oh, this is a wow for sure!
I love peonies. White especially. That is a gorgeous photo Willow.
That is a beautiful sight. Nice shot.
How can you match words with pictures in so few lines - wonderful
Mine had one glorious bloom on it when I bought and planted it... five years ago. This year is the first year it's actually got a bud! Waiting anxiously for opening day.
delicious, and wonderful photo!
Gorgeous photo -- they're early here too and here too they're being rained on.
Exceptionally stunning! Your choice of words so vivid! Of course the mood is set for me by just reading Willow and Manor, they're both on my favorite list! Enjoy your peonies!
Thanks everybody...they got some sunshine today...so they're starting to open...I've got a mix of dark pink, pale pink, and white...in a few more days I'll bring a big bunch of them inside...
Every plant in our flower gardens are blooming a month early...and tons of blooms! They're blooming their blooming heads off.
Mine are just starting to open too. I need to get out and photograph before they are all gone. Yes, the ants do make a trail on them don't they!
They are early and amazing! I just posted some pics from a Yellow Springs cemetery...gorgeousness!
My father once sprayed the ants that were on the peonies -- they didn't open. Turns out the ants are necessary to remove the sticky goo holding the petals together.
Yes! The ants are essential in opening them! Isn't that amazing?
Love your haiku!
The ants actually only lick some verities. They do not have much to do with the opening. It is a myth
