When I came home to the Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighbor of Eastwood after a good day at the Liverpool Public Library Tuesday, two of our powerful peony flowers had deemed it time to pop into existence.
It was a powerful sight to welcome me around 4:30 p.m.
When I pulled the Chevy Cruze into the driveway Wednesday afternoon, just about 24 hour later, it was a different look in that front corner.
Yes, another two had joined the 80º F-plus air.
They seem to be traveling in pairs this season.
And it may be a quick season, indeed. My dear wife Karen and I will be sure to savor the colorful bunch.
Do your blooms come out all at once, or do they stagger? Do you think nature lets them communicate so they’re not all alone against other forces? What’s blooming this week where you live?
