First Peony

The yard seems to be exploding this morning with new blooms! The first peony is here, I shot it early this morning, closed and dew-drenched.

Does the snowball viburnum like sun or shade? It is so pretty.

My peonies haven't opened yet. I can't wait.

Thank you, my yard, is always in need of much work, the weeds are taking over right now,
colorsonmymind, I think it will take either, I have two and one is in shade and one is in sun, I need to learn how to prune them ;)
