Peonies. I love peonies. If I could have fresh peonies on my desk everyday, I would be one happy girl. The great thing about them is that they come in so many different colors and varieties.
They are widely used in Chinese culture and are known as the "flower of riches and honor"
Peonies tend to attract ants to the flower buds. This is due to the nectar that forms on the outside of the flower buds. DON'T kill the ants! The flowers won't bloom correctly if you do (my Mama told me so). Hopefully I will be able to get some good pictures of the peony plant I have at my home. Every year it seems like it doubles in size.
