In praise of the peony

Indiana's state flower is the peony. OK, whatever. But I appreciate them so much more since our friend K brought a lovely bouquet of them into our house last week. Now I see them everywhere, in people's yards and all around town. The flowers are so delicate, so fine, so perfect. I love them! I told S that we must get a peony bush for our yard so that we can have our own flowers next May!
