The peony or paeony is a flowering plant in the genus Paeonia, the only genus in the family Paeoniaceae. Peonies are native to Asia, Europe and Western North America. Scientists differ on the number of species that can be distinguished, ranging from 25 to 40, although the current consensus is 33 known species.Wikipedia
"And the wind upon its way whispered the boughs of May, And touched the nodding peony flowers to bid them waken."
~ Siegfried Sassoon
I spotted a couple bouquets of peonies at the Bristol Farm Market in Santa Barbara. They begin to bloom Mid-May through mid June in our area. The early birds pictured above must have bloomed in a greenhouse.
Happy Wednesday to Everyone!
