Peony Power

Peonies have always seemed like a very powerful, majestic flower to me.  A powerful blossom ready to take on the world.  Fragile in its own right, yet solid and strong, and what a unique and lovely fragrance.
Trader Joe's had some in their floral department and there was no way I was going to pass them by.

Funny that I enjoy them so much more now than when I was surrounded by Peony bushes in the Midwest growing up.  You can really take beautiful things for granted when you are surrounded by them for days on end...just like a gorgeous view which after day of day of gorgeousness, becomes almost a painted drop cloth on a stage.
