Photo of the Day - Peony

Did you know the delicate, fragrant petals of peonies are opened by busy little ants? It's true.
This photo was taken at my mom's a few years ago. I thought I'd post it just to show you.

They have a great many varieties of peonies at Duke Gardens, but my favorites were the classic pale pink.

My favorite flower, I adore the fragrant of Peonis. It is hard to grow here, but I manage to have them scatter in my backyard. One of them is blooming right now. I should take a photos.
