Until next year.
Peonies are perennials so will return next Spring. The peony blossoms seemed extra lush this year. And there were some varieties in the Highland Park Gardens I’d not seen before.
Peonies–“Peonies are usually sold as bare-root tubers with 3 to 5 eyes (buds), divisions of a 3- or 4-year-old plant” from the Farmers Almanac “Peonies are said to symbolize a happy life and a happy marriage”
Here is an article about the Biological Mutualism of Ants and Peonies. “It’s a myth that ants are necessary for peonies to bloom” (but they do love the nectar from Peonies)

One of many wonders we get to enjoy if we just look. dc
We were thinking on the same topic today, as I included info about an area peony garden in my blog post today. I love peonies. Thanks for sharing your PA peonies. Beautiful.
We are on the same wavelength, Audrey. I’ll go look now.
