Can't have peonys without ants, it seems. You are way ahead of us in growth, mine are nowhere near forming buds yet here in Oregon. Wait, I'm going to go look at them now............I was wrong! There are buds on there! I guess we aren't so far behind after all.

I remember the ants on my mom's peonies too, when I was a kid...I guess they need to be there to make the blossoms more brilliant with carrying pollen and such.

Here are my entries for the day.

Lovely! I just hope that ant doesn't cause any harm to it, coz they're such a nuisance here.

Thats one plant Iv'e never had before and my mum said she loves them, maybe I should seek one out as a present. I think she remembers them from childhood. Nice post btw.

I will have to try the peony, especially if they are frangrant. Cool shot of the ant.

Could we ever be more grateful to such a tiny critter than those who find our peonies?!! Nice 'glam' shot of this guy.
