May Blooms

I know the month of May is on its way out, but I don’t think it’s too late to post photos of what this month is usually known for. Flowers.

Here are different variety of peonies in our yard. Peonies are perennials, that means they come back every year. But after their flowers bloom, which in our area is usually in May, then they go into hibernation.

I like peonies because their flowers are beautiful and large. They also produce a lot of blooms.

Some of the bushes are so burdened with their flowers that they bow so low with their flowers kissing the earth.

Sadly to say these flowers last only 7 -10 days. Like everything else in this life, they are temporary and fleeting.

We’ll just enjoy their beauty before the flowers eventually fall to the ground. Until they come back again next year.
