Here’s the flower from the Peony bud I posted on the 28th of May. It seems to take a long time to flower! But it was worth the wait!

Lovely bloom, Robin. In my experience, they don’t last for long, so if you’ve got either a small flat water container or one of those globe-like glass containers with an open top, you can just cut it off, with about a inch of stem, and float it on water indoors … a pretty, if impermanent decoration.

They don’t stay in the bloom after it’s opened. I don’t know why.
Incidentally, did either of you see Merle Plagge’s shot of a double peony on Ipernity? I don’t know whether this will get you in, but give it a try: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/507791/33189399

Isn’t that amazing?

Definately worth the wait to see that beauty bloom. Great fence and reflections shots.
