Apparently we have Peonies!
That's right...hiding under the big fallen down tree in the yard we found these beauties. As luck would have it, they were not rising towards the sun as one might expect, but rather laying flat out on the ground...soaking wet and looking rather defeated. I decided to cut some and see if I could bring them back to life!
They're now living on my nightstand...in a lovely vase I made myself!
What do you think?
