Floral Fantasy: Peonies, Part II

On my very last night in Canada, while I was pruning my willow, I started thinking, (I know, again, usually a bad idea).

The peonies were beautiful, they had just started flowering, and we were leaving, what a waste. But my MIL and SIL were there to take us to the airport the next day. Would they not like a bouquet. of course they would.

So I cut all the peonies, and since I had just pruned the willow, I had a lot of foliage to add to them.

Do you like them?

    What a wonderful gift to your mother-in-law and sister-in-law. The last thing I do before I drive away from Maine each August to head back to Gettysburg for the beginning of school is to cut flowers from the garden, put them in a container of water inside a plastic bag, and tuck them into a secure location in my packed-to-the-gills car. It somehow makes it less sad to drive away from the garden. (But my arrangements are very simple; yours are spectacular!) -Jean
