I find it so fascinating that peonies need the ants crawling around the bud in order to flower. Someone told me why once, which I do not remember. But, great to look at, and not bring in to the house. So, a couple of images of peony buds, and a few photos of them in full bloom, with a little rain water left over.
Thanks for your comments on my "Art Car" upload.
