Our peony that is, not me.
After a few hours of warm sunshine on Monday - 18 degrees in the afternoon! - the blooms opened and put on quite a show. I love them but they are short lived performers.
I took a couple of photos before Wednesday's forecast rain arrives to flatten them.
Today (Tuesday) has started off bright and breezy but cool. I am having a quick tidy up around the house as we are expecting a visit from P's niece. He hasn't seen her since the late 1970s when he left Australia to move back to the UK. We are hoping it will be warm enough to enjoy tea and cakes outside this afternoon, before the weather front reaches us.
