a peony-in-waiting?

That's it! The peonies in that stage produce kind of ... sweet liquid maybe. Their buds are covered with ants :D

Apparently, they depend on ants in order to bloom -- at least this is what I'm told by.

I like the colours here better than mine: http://www.23hq.com/clvrmnky/photo/756780

Thanks a lot!
Clvrmnky, yours is gorgeous! I'll ask a colleague of mine, working with ants. She might know more about this curious cooperation. :)
