|I really <3 peonies.|
Depends on who you ask around here, these may be called pinies, ponies, or, as the rest of the world knows them, peonies. Peonies are one of my absolute favorite flowers. My grandmother, Mamaw Black, had a big, gorgeous peony bush in her front yard that thrilled me every time it bloomed. Sadly, both my grandmother and the bush have passed on, but my love of peonies remains. I visited my Aunt Lizetta and she loaded me up with an armful of the blossoms to bring home.
She has a large variety of peonies growing in her yard and was very generous sharing them with me.
I was pleased to discover that when I got home, my own little peony bush bloomed for the first time. Of course, this had to be pointed out by my husband seeing as I hardly ever leave the house except to get in my car to go shopping. Believe it or not, I'm not a nature girl. But I do appreciate beautiful things. Peonies are definitely beautiful things.
