Floral Memories of New England
We enjoy having cut flowers in the house, and my wife bought these peonies at the market the other day. We don't tend to see them growing in our area...at least I don't recall seeing them, I think because of the temperatures.
But we enjoyed several large gardens of them back in New England in a wide range of colors, and as I recall spent quite a bit of money on them, especially when we lived further outside Boston in the suburbs and had lots of room. And it seems I had a lot more time to garden. It was one of the things the people who bought our house in Bolton when we moved into the city really loved.
Peonies remain a fond memory of New England living whenever I see them.
