Peony's for Remembrance

Memorial Day is often celebrated by placing peony's on graves.
I love peony's just for the pure pleasure of their beauty.
Yesterday I celebrated the day by attending a Peony Festival.
This spring time I have seen so many beautiful flowers.
Flowers make a glorious welcome to the sunshine.
Enjoy the day by remembering and sniffing a beautiful flower.

I love peonies also. Ours are about done. I especially like the white ones. We have the real light pink ones.

the iris's I planted last year are opening, and each one is a wonderful surprise, as I don't remember all the colors I planted. Each has their own unique scent, and I'm taking your advice and sniffing the flowers today!

Your collage of peonies is beautiful. My grandmother had them in her garden in Canada. I'd love to have a couple of peony bushes.

Peonies...*sigh*...summer is here! I just love peonies. We have four bright pink ones, but I'm itching for a white one. Along with roses, they are queens of the garden. Happy Week, Marilyn :o) ((HUGS))
