I had hoped, hoped, hoped the post today would be the peony from in front of the house. But those buds are just on the brink of opening, probably just as we depart on Monday. So I thought I would bring you the next best thing. Glorious blooms from my new source here that I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to have found. Caretaker Bill told us about a grower he had heard of and gave me their address. My grocery store hunting had me coming up dry in the peony department, so we were off to locate this possible new flower supplier. Well, let me just say, that was a few days ago and I am still smiling. I was surrounded by so many blooms I had thought I went to flower heaven! Could not wait to share these peony with you all today.
