Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. In fact, I was trying to decide yesterday whether or not I liked peonies even better than roses.
These are not my own peonies. These came from my mom's garden. However, my sister and I are dreaming about planting our own row of peonies out back.
I just can't wait until that heavenly scent will be drifting in through the living room windows!
My mom's neighbor brought her some pink peonies. Their color was just beautiful (unfortunately I had to take the photo at night, and the flash-lighting doesn't do justice to these flowers).
Maybe next year I'll have some of my own to show!
