Anticipation In the Rain

In a couple of days, give or take depending on the weather, this sucker is going to be just covered in big, manly flowers. Flowers as big as 52 tooth chainrings - incredibly over-the-top and tasteless flowers ... unrefined and course ... and so frickin' drop-dead gorgeous they'll leave me gasping for breathe. This is gonna be worth waiting eleven months for. You just wait and see!
Tree peony  'Hanakisoi' (Paeonia suffruticosa rockii hybrid)

Interestingly, our peonies are just about finished. The joy of latitude.

And our herbaceous peonies are just starting to set buds.
