Just one more flower from May . . . .

A couple of years ago our friend Diane gave us this beautiful peony.

I really meant to take more pictures as the blossom grew and grew - `











When it blooms full open, the flowers are incredibly beautiful.














The petals are "whispy, parchmenty thin" and unfortunately were getting beat about by the rain, but if you click on the picture to biggify it, you will see just how beautiful they are - I think this coral color is really one of my favorites.








And then, when you look even closer, you see an itty bitty smiley face...don't ya just love it?
