Peony Bud

"Peony Buds" - Captured by Naomi Thomson, 2012

Did you know that the peonies need the ants to bloom?  I didn't.  Until I showed this picture to my garden-savvy aunt.  Cool.  :)


  1. I miss those in the spring! And yes...I remember that if we wanted to cut them and bring them in the house, we had to shake them to try and get rid of the ants hidden inside the petals. It was hard to get them all...sometimes we didn't. ;-)

  2. Awww looks like spring has begun to sprung!
