I walk the same route most mornings with the dogs. This lets me keep an eye on progress. This pale pink peony bush has been on my mind of late. today’s sunshine brought it out all the way.

On today’s walk.
Just two days ago:
In May a couple of sunny days can make a big difference.
ee’s Flower of the Day.
The colors of the youngest buds are more saturated, almost like sunset colors.
Still vibrant at the edges, razzmatazz pink.
Opened out the colors become a little more muted, but still lovely.
These flowers are mostly showy in mass, the individual bloom is not a show stopper, like the rose, but when the morning sun hits them the opening buds have a lovely delicacy, both in form and in color.

I almost don’t remember May, so much has happened since and it held no major milestones or stresses.

We did have a very nice Mother’s Day celebration at the residence where grandma lived at the time. Looking back now that was a very good thing. It may wind up as a milestone.
