Flavescens these are about twice as tall, as they usually are ! All the stalks seem VERY tall, this year! The peonies are "long", as well !

Darius makes my heart pitter patter. I don't remember seeing it before. I'm hoping my beds look that full next year. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

Thumb of 2020-05-23/crowrita1/96f5f3
Swertii…..kinda' an ugly form on this old gal, but , that "puckered" look is the was it's supposed to be Shrug! . it's quite a bit taller, this year, as well.

Lady Mohr....an arilbred….AB's really don't do well, for me, but this is one that keeps "hanging on".

You got some nice color already, and with all those buds, it won't be long before you are in full swing. I have one early peony that is starting to open, but the others are behind yours by about a week or two I'd guess.

I reaaly need to get a different camera. Mine uses an "LCD" screen for the viewfinder, and, when outside, any glare, at all, and I can't see the darn thing ! So I have to "guess", as to both focus and framing Shrug!

Still no peonies, here, Tom ! You are a bit ahead , on those, this year. Maybe tomorrow, the early one will open Shrug!

The gnats are absolutely horrid, this morning...no breeze, at all, and they sound like chainsaws when they get in your ears !!!

Accent and Copper Luster! Lovey dubby Awesome. I only have one peony open, and it's a really early bloomer, the rest will be a way off yet.

I have a few TB's open next to the house only, farther out only little ones open.

The pod parent to BB Hi Buddy has been bloomming a streak as usual. almost wish that I had registered
it. but it only has 5 buds compared to Hi Buddy's 7 so I didn't. Every year garden is inspected the guy says he 'likes the purple one.'

Maybe you SHOULD register it, Lucy Shrug! ! If it's as "dependable" as your others, it would be a welcome addition !

Arlyn, your irises are a picture as always. No wonder you get visitors to come and enjoy them too.

I've decided that I am "bone lazy" ! Did a bit of weeding, and bug swatting, this morning....gave up, and took the tractor around to pick up some piles of weeds I'd left laying.....saw a couple irises, still looking good, and snapped a couple pix....but didn't get off the tractor, to do it ! I'll post them, later....too lazy to do it, now *Blush*
