I just had to post this picture!! I am just dying for my peonies to begin blooming this year (This picture is from last spring). So far this year, they are about a foot tall; that has all happened since Easter weekend! I have three peony bushes but this is my oldest one. I got it from my Mom for Easter several years ago; I just love it!! My sweet Lucy gets her picture taken quite frequently; she's pretty good at posing!
