Peonies

The peonies have lots of buds. One by one they are opening.
I just had to go out and check up on them.
A breeze came along and almost knocked me to the ground.
With a little luck I managed to grab onto a flower stem on the way down.
This flower smells heavenly and is so fluffy.
I could almost climb in the middle and take a little nap.
What a pretty bud.
They are beautiful while they last but their life is short.
The peonies always happen to bloom just as the rainy weather starts.
