I Like Peonies

Peonies are one of my favorite flowers.  I wait all spring for them to bloom. 

Once they open, amazing.

I mean, is there anything prettier?  Never mind the aroma.  

And then it POURS.  I know you can stake them, but I don't, and never will, so it's a mad dash to save what I can.

In they come,  on the dining room table . . .

and in the front hall at the bottom of the stairs . . .

There is not a candle, spray, or anything else that  can compete with the natural scent of a peony!  The house 
smells delightful!

Happy gardening!
