I kept hearing that the peonies were back at the Arboretum. This is something I've been looking forward to since the last time I saw them last year. Despite the fact that I take many pictures of trains and ships, I do like things like flowers. They make for a nice change from all that mechanical stuff.
This one looks like it was one of the first to bloom and is about to go away now.
I will have to go back sometime next week, I think more of the flowers will be in bloom.
