Repeat After Me

There is nothing better than a peony!
I seriously do have my kids say this.
I wait all spring for these. They tease me with balled up blossoms that ever so slowly grow . The promise is there early, you just have to wait for it. Finally, they start to pop. The smell is perfect. The flowers are huge and you can fill a vase with just 3 blooms. The glossy leaves are a bonus. They are perrenials. Very little maintainace.
When we were in New York a few weeks ago, they were selling them on the street for $6 a bloom. I am rich in Peonies!

A peony is better than a rose any day. My anniversary bouquet was full of white peony, lilacs, and peach roses. Perfection.

Unfortunately all this rain we've been getting has turned many of my blossoms brown, but the fragrance is still intoxicating!
