Garden surprise!

I have been monitoring a suspicious plant growing in tandem with a row of stonecrop in my front yard.  At first I thought it was a weed, but then it started to look a little familiar so I left it alone.  When I checked it out this morning, I could hardly believe it when I found this:

Recognize it?  Look closer.

It’s a peony!  I have no idea where it came from, it definitely wasn’t there last year.  Weird, right?  It even has a great big bud on it.  I’ll transplant it into the back yard with its friends in the fall, but for now I’m just going to enjoy this little gift.
