    Love the peonies. They represent the unfolding of this wonderful season. I also wanted to comment on your terrific blog about “Goldstar Mothers.” You are quite the historian. It was fascinating and moving!!!!

  4. Gorgeous! It’s amazing how such a small bud can explode into so much beauty! 🙂

  5. I love peonies. The weather took a turn though – hot and rainy – and devastated mine. Yours are gorgeous.

    • It sounds like you are actually growing them. I purchased my peonies from Trader Joes. They have the most reasonable price. I do grow roses though.
