It is Peony time here at Sweetwater!
This picture probably says it all!
Sadly they don't last long enough....but if you take a minute to click on this link...
there is a way to make the season last a bit longer...
The Chinese name for peony means “beautiful” and in Chinese culture the flowers represent riches, prosperity and honor. In Western culture, the peony serves as the symbol for the 12th wedding anniversary, and in the language of flowers, represents good fortune and a happy marriage. In Victorian times, it might also have represented bashfulness, since mischievous nymphs were said to hide in its magnificent petals.
So now you know.....I hope you are lucky enough to have some of these beauties in your yard!
Cut them and Enjoy!
Have A Wonderful Day!
