For a few short days

This tree peony blooms spectacularly depending on the weather the blooms last three days to one week…and then it’s gone. It was almost a month later than usual this year because of the exceptionally cold winter that just wouldn’t give up.

The only other flower I’ve seen that is both more spectacular and more fleeting is the night blooming Cereus.
