I love peony’s because of the incredible transformation they go through. Starting out as tight, dense buds, each morning brings a surprise as to how they have slowly begun to unfold. I also find it amazingly satisfying to see how big and full they are once they’ve completely opened.
I was also really shocked by this group of peony’s, because by the end, just as the petals were beginning their decent to the table top, they turned pale white. I don’t recall ever having peony’s do that!
