A Mother's Day Bouquet

It's just not Mother's Day without flowers, is it?

I took these from my garden during a break in the rain last week. Personally, I'm thrilled that it's peony season again. Back when my mother was still alive, but very sick, I cut some peonies and FedEx'd them to her. I was probably breaking all sorts of Dept. of Agriculture regulations in doing so, but she had said the one thing she missed about living on the East Coast was peonies. They apparently need a cold winter to do well, and Southern California is too warm.
