Pic-of-The-day - "Peonies".
When we where kids we called Peonies 'ant flowers' because they where always covered in ants. I did a quick search but couldn't find a definitive answer as to why. most sources agree t the plants secrete some sort of nectar that attracts the ants, but they where less clear what the ants actually do for the plants. one suggestion is that they somehow help the flowers to open. but, again I couldn't find much as to how exactly that takes place.
