Flower Friday: Peony

I have a fond memory of peonies. On Memorial Day weekend, my Grammy and I would snip the stems of the peonies growing in Mom's garden. We'd cover glass jars with foil, add water and place the fragrant flowers in the jars. Then we'd visit Grandpa, Great-grandma, and my great-uncle's graves. Gram would have me dig a small divot, to tuck the bottom of the jar into. My brother carries on this tradition that shows honor and respect. 


  1. Beautiful. I love peonies, too. Interesting how "peonies" can be pronounced different ways according to where people live. :-)

    1. That is interesting. We always pronounced them like pine as in piney.


Thank you for stopping by. I review all comments then post them.
