We have a very old tree peony in our backyard.  However, this flower is not from that plant.  For whatever reason, our’s has chosen not to bloom this year (or last year either for that matter.)  I glanced over and noticed that Eric has several of these ‘tree peony’ plants bloomng in two or three different colors, so of course I snuck over and took a few photos.  Thanks Eric!  He inherited these beautiful shrubs from our previous neighbor who passed away a few years ago.  William had quite the green thumb and taught me many things about plants and about being a good neighbor.    afs
