|Stages of a Tree peony|
Monday, May 30, 2011
On May 4th, I took the first photos of the tree peony, its leaves tightly curled around the bud and yesterday it blossomed. In spite of all the rain it opened and unfurled its flower in a space of a few hours. I love watching these miracles in the garden. You go to bed, rain sounding on the tin roof, thunder and lighting making a fine racket, Zoe trying to sleep in the cupboard where she feels safe, and when you wake up and go outside the iris and peonies have bloomed. And it's not a dream.
