Colours of Spring: Red Peony

A flowering red peony–one of four on the front lawn bed, and one of many more in the backyard, waiting to bud–taken on a sunny mid-May evening. I’ve seen peonies in other colours of white and pink, and some, not all, have a fragrance; others are completely scentless. All have nectar that ants find irresistible, but thankfully these peonies are free of formicidic predations.
