Peonies~ A Little Piece Of Family History

This gorgeous peony flower is from last summers garden. This peony grows every year as it has for probably generations. Planted by grandparents or possibly great grandparents, it remains undisturbed to provide sustenance for the soul for all the generations that have followed. The children are proud of their heritage, right down to the beautiful plantings that continue to poke up through the soil year after year.

Peonies do have history, don't they.

Can a peony be a child's first garden crush? My mom had one I loved. I remember picking a flower from it to bring to my teacher, knowing that she was getting the best flower in the garden. :)
