Peonies remind me of my gramma. She was my favorite person as a child. So I always love to have Peonies growing in my yard. Gathering the sweet fat blossoms to make a bouquet is a splendid lush feeling. I shake them for the ants that may be hiding in them and then put them in a vase to enjoy for a day or two.
Splendid flowers. I think Martha Stewart loves them too. She has tons of varieties and I have just the old fashioned. Two bushes of white, one of pale pink and one hot pink and all lovely.
