peony green

I never got a photo of the Peony plant when it flowered this year. The flowering time is so short- it seems like just a few days and then the heavy blooms are gone. The plant looked different this year- it didn't grow nearly as big, and the flowers looked darker to me- I swear last year they were a deep pink and this year they looked darker purple to me.
The good news is that I might finally get some peony seed to plant. The pods are looking nice and fat, which I've never seen before. Might wonder why I want to grow more peonies since I'm not really crazy about their short-lived flowers that flop all over the place. But I do like the foliage. And probably one year I'll remember to put supports out to hold up those flowers!
