First Peonies of the Season

This past weekend I went home for Mother’s Day weekend and discovered my parents’ peony bush.  The peonies weren’t open yet, but I can imagine how stunning the flowers will look once they are in full bloom.  Seeing the peony buds reminded me that I absolutely did not want to miss out on peony season this year (unlike the past two years), so I snapped up a few post-Mother’s Day stems from a nearby bodega.

PS: I discovered that the “chin chin cherie” flowers from this previous post are called Star of Bethlehem.
