Especially for Memorial Day I present you with peonies. Double or single petal, creamy white with crimson flecks, rosy pink with lemon cream collars, fuschia with deep yellow staminodes, blushing pink, fully open or buds. All beautiful. They fill the area around the dining room table with the scent of spring.
I just read tonight that if you want to plant them it's best to do it in the fall. I will be searching between now and then for the best place to buy just the right ones for a spot in my garden. It think it would be best to buy local but I found a special peony nursery in Canada that it will be hard not to buy something from. I have been having the best time reviewing their catalogue.
