Blush-coloured poppies are some of my favourite flowers.
I thought it was finally time to have a peony of my own, so a month ago I bought a Sarah Bernhardt peony that had about five tightly-closed buds on it and planted it in the yard. It has sprouted two large blooms, as well as one that has been snipped and placed on the mantel. It smells incredible. Yesterday while I was at the gym Geoff texted me a photo of Pony sniffing it, which I promptly posted to Instagram. The pictures below were taken as it bloomed. It was very exciting for this non-gardener to see the perfect, ballet pink petals unfurl (admittedly, it has required virtually no care at all).
