For years I have been meaning to take some photos of our Peony flowers. We were fortunate to inherit a couple of Peony plants when we moved house 20 years ago. The flowers are deep red and exceptionally beautiful. However, you have to be quick to see them - they usually die off within a few days.
So today, blessed with that bank of time given only to retired councillors and normal people, I took this photo of the first Peony flower of this season.
I also planted four tomato plants ('Gardener's delight') and a couple of melon plantlings.
