FOTD – May 13 – Peony Bud

Welcome to my Flower of the Day Challenge (FOTD).  Please feel free to post every day or when you you feel like it.  Don’t forget that my FOTD challenge accepts leaves and berries as well as flowers.

Another bud from my yard. I like you can see the sun on a couple of spider webs.

I would appreciate you continuing to post your entries on my daily post entries.  If you need more information here is a link to my FOTD page.

I’ve gathered a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

    • My dear late husband, who loved to tease me when I wasn’t paying attention to something he was saying, once told me that the ants’ little feet worked to help the reluctant petals open on the tight peony buds.

      He also told me that the purpose of carrot oil was to make it easier for the carrots to be removed from the ground without breaking them. I never did find out if “carrot oil” was a thing…I think it was some kind of stuff farmers would spray on carrot crops.

      … and once he tried to convince me that if one eats a great big juicy burger, it only contains the actual weight of the sandwich in calories.



  1. Lovely! Mine are just beginning to appear with the green leaves. No buds yet. But with the warmer weather they will grow fast. πŸ™‚


  2. Yet again, you’re well ahead of us. I always think of peonies as being my birthday flower, but no chance this year, I think.


  3. Nice bud, Cee. Actually I have some fun peony bud photos languishing in my camera, as I am still agonizing over the malfunctioning of my photo software.


      • My daughter helped me get on the posting trail again! I was having big trouble with OneDrive, and she figured out how to disable it…apparently ya can’t kill it, but it can be unlinked. Maybe it was causing less actual trouble than it was driving me nuts… πŸ™‚

  4. I started out wanting picture of our buds, but most of them were too small except for the few remaining big buds on the Rhodendrons. We had a lot of buds, but now those buds are all flowers. Even our azalea is blooming right now. I need to go out and get some pictures of it. It hadn’t bloomed this much in years.
