About Today’s Photo:
Peonies are starting to bloom in several locations on our property. We have a variety of diffent colors and forms. This blossom has an interested compound form of larger and smaller petals. Looking up the flowers on Wikipedia yields quite a bit of interesting information about the plant and its long and storied use as a medical plant and food additive especially in Asian cultures.
