Usually as soon as my Tree Paeony comes into bloom, it gets spoilt by wind or rain. This year looks like I could have the blooms for longer than 1 day!!
The flower bloom is almost the size of a dinner plate.
While hubby was up in the loft this evening, he found this. A quick search on Google revealed that it is a Hornet nest. A marvellous feat of engineering. I shall be taking it to work with me next week to show my children as we are doing about bugs this forthcoming term.
