The Peony: Unforgettable Ephemeral Beauty

    Do I spy a few ants??? (I long ago learned the hard way that there’s good reason not to cut peonies to bring indoors, no matter how sweet-smelling they are!).

    Although short-lived, peonies are gorgeous show-stoppers! Mine have already gone as well, but they are definitely worth waiting for each year.
