Ah, it's peony time . . .
Opening yesterday, these came from plants that have grown in our garden for about 25 years. Before that they grew in my mom and dad's garden--and before that, my grandparents' garden in town--and before that, my grandparents' farm. That says a lot about a plant when it gets moved right along with the family. It takes it a while to take root, but once it does nothing compares.
