P for Peony... last year's crop. I've given myself license to use my photos again because it'll probably be until June when we see peonies in Minnesota this year.
Is there anything more delicious than the subtle scent of a peony in full bloom? They spell Memorial Day for me, taking huge bouquets in large tin cans to the cemetary to leave at family plots. My job was to hold them so they wouldn't spill in the car. So much better to hide my face in their soft petals and inhale.
