Peony

This should be my last post this year on the Peony.  The flowers are opening quickly now and as we all know, they don’t last long.

There are more flowers on it this year than there have ever been and still more buds to open.

The first couple of pictures are from the 17th when Chester and I were heading out for our walk.  He decided to check the flowers out himself and ended up trying to have a snack.

I’ve seen him break a flower off a bush in the back yard and eat it before, but this time I pulled him off before he broke the stem on the Peony.  You’d almost think I never fed the poor boy, but he had just eaten about an hour earlier.

I took these Wild Rose pictures on the 17th as well.  They are also in my front yard.

The rest of the Peony pictures were taken this morning.
