Down and Dirty
The beautiful, lush peony blossoms are such showoffs. They certainly last longer than the lilacs that are quickly fading, glorious as they were. The two plants from last year showed such promise, and I still have hopes for the smaller. The larger had one big bud, the little one has two. "Had" is the definitive term. Some dastardly beast chomped the one bud clean off. Either peonies taste nasty or said beast is waiting for the buds to ripen. Since the new plant has not been touched, I'm thinking the flavor is off.
Getting down and dirty in the yard beats dusting any day.
