first, my grandma's peony. maw-maw (that's a southern term) died 8 years ago and about two years ago my paw-paw sold the house and moved into a retirement home. when he did i dug up some of the peony bush in their front yard and
we the hubs has been babying it and nursing it since then. this year, for the first time, it bloomed.
isn't it gorgeous? i think it's my maw-maw's way of saying happy mother's day : )
here are some other shots from the yard
