Peonies

This morning I saw the little heads of the peony bush peeking out. When some people see my peony bush, they say "oh you must be from the Midwest" because you sure don't see any around here. In Texas they call it PEONY just like it is spelled, but we Chicagoan's call it PEENY. I am not sure what strand of peony this is but it is sure beautiful and each year I get another flower. This year I also planted a Sarah Bernhardt Peony bulb. I can't wait for Spring !!
