Stunning White Peonies
I wish I could say these stunning white peonies came from our garden, but they did not. They came from the garden of a coworker friend of mine. When I spied this arrangement on her desk, I stopped dead in my tracks. At first I thought they weren't real, they looked so perfect. There were a few tightly closed buds too, which are now beginning to open, as you can see in the photos. On Friday, as she left work to go out of town, she asked if I'd like to take the peonies home to enjoy over Memorial Day weekend. Would I ever! There's nothing like gorgeous flowers to lift the spirit. Don't these flowers just make you smile?
I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. As we enjoy the holiday, let's keep in our hearts and minds all those who died while serving our country in the U.S. Armed Forces. Their service and sacrifice are deeply appreciated, and they are not forgotten.
