So Many Pretty Blooms

Notice the ginormous hollyhock behind the peonies. It's a "nigra" grown from seed last year. When it finally blooms this year, I'm guessing it's going to be over 6 feet tall! 
The white ones are about a week behind these.

I divided, replanted, and gave away these peonies last year, so wasn't sure they would even bloom. I had about 5-6 on each pink peony and one or two buds on the white peonies. I'm hoping for lots more next year!

A soon-to-be-pretty bloom .... I have no idea what color it will be as I dug it out of the ground from a friend of a friend long after it had bloomed last year. I check it every day for tell-tale signs of color.
