Peonies....about full bloom in the yard
This is about as peak full bloom as I am going to get. There are a couple bushes yet to open, but others that opened earlier are starting to wind down. The scent is intoxicating when walking in the yard. Just love it. I only wish the bloom time lasted longer. This year is even shorter than usual because we went from quite cool weather to extrememly hot weather almost over night. The blooms are opening fast and not lasting as long as usual.
These were taken in the evening light causing a blue cast.
