My peonie has a first name....it's Oscar!

So last year I purchased 2 beautiful peonies. I was so thrilled when they came back this year! I was anxiously awaiting their bloom. Then tragedy struck - Cooper ripped 1/2 of one of the plants out of the ground! No blooms from that one! I hope there is enough of it left that it will come back next year. Not to worry! I still had one plant and it had several buds on it! Sadly, one by one, those blooms got pulled off by my adorable and destructive boys until there was just one left! I protected that remaining bloom and threatened my boys if they came near! Finally, the day came when Noah excitedly ran in the house and exclaimed, "Mom! Your bologna is blooming!!" I love that kid! ;)
