Happy Father's Day to all fathers out there...dads, grandpas, uncles...world is a much better place when you are around. Even though we are celebrating fatherhood and men, I finally got my own present in the garden today. After 3 years, my yellow peony finally bloomed, just in time for Father's Day. I absolutely love it, thought I'd share as it is very unusual. Thanks for looking, Tatyana

Beautiful, is that a tree peony?

Absolutely gorgeous. I was not even aware that peonies were yellow, also. Mine are all a pale blush or sweet pink. What a wonderful bonus for you on Fathers Day!

Vonnie, I actually used this photo as my phone wallpaper....which replaced a picture of my husband with kids for now. You know, I've got my priorities straight - haha. Anyway, to answer all your questions, it is a hybrid peony, Google "itoh peonies", this one is called Bartzella. My absolute favorite
