I have been waiting for the peony bushes to bloom next to Reggie’s shop. And just over the past few days, some of the blossoms have really become lovely. Not only is the peony the state flower of Indiana, but it was one of the flowers in my wedding bouquet, so I’m rather partial to this natural beauty. My family has always had peony bushes for as long as I can remember. They have a sweet fragrance, and come in several luscious shades of white, cream, and pink, ranging from pale pink to a deep reddish pink. And their petals also vary in shape and size. The ones nestled beside Reggie’s shop are cream and pale pink. Here are some of my favorite images from today.
