Peony is the Strangest Word

.. But one of the most beautiful flowers I've ever seen. Sitting at my desk in silence last night, I'd hear a sound like a creak in the woodwork or a tiny "apparition" pop but when I'd look over the tight round buds had burst open shamelessly, with all its white ruffly petals spilled out for the world (me) to see. I just had to take photos.

What I like best about peonies is that they look delicate, and even more so as they begin to wilt and pale in color, but they are far from fragile. I like to feel the velvetiness of petals between my fingers, and peonies don't wither away at my touch. They are strong and beautiful, a kind of flower I'd want to be.
