Drama Queen

Usually for my Bloomin' Tuesday posts, I like to show a variety of blossoms, but today I am limiting myself to just one variety. This flower is just too dramatic and spectacular to share the spotlight. The Peony. One of my all-time favorite flowers. It's gigantic, full blossoms demand attention and its sweet fragrance is heaven scent!

I have two varieties in my yard -- both of which are full-figured gals with voluptuous blossoms. We had a tardy spring this year, so they were a little late for their coming out party. This week they made their debut...
Could they possibly be any prettier?
