I am in love with these flowers

The welcomed scent of these flowers filled the air as I worked in my garden yesterday.
These two lovely flowers remind me of my twin nieces. They are alike in so many ways, yet distinctly and uniquely beautiful. Remember when they turned sixteen and I posted their baby pictures here?

Peonies are one of my favorites. Their perfume is so intense with a spicy aroma. I love your comparison to your nieces......they may be twins but they are their own person.

Your previous post of your pup is so adorable. A~

Lovely, pretty flowers, Lily and the photos of your nieces are beautiful. I'd love to see pics of the girls now that they're 16!

wonderful photograph.
How can it be these are attached to the same plant? Is one just developing and the other an older flower?
