GIGANTIC peony

wow!!! i started working in the floral business about 13 years ago and in all that time i have NEVER seen a peony as big, beautiful or perfect as this one!! i can't wait to start a painting, or two, or more, of it!! it really was almost as big as my head. and it's one of my fav colors that peonies come in, i think the really dark salmon color might be my other favorite. what is your favorite flower?? maybe i have already painted it...

yes, my entire hand would have been hidden behind it...

Sigh. I wish we could grow those here!

i know! the funny thing is that many people who can grown them find them a nuisance because they attract ants and the buds and flowers are covered in them. can you imagine having a house filled with peonies from your own garden? awesome. oh well, i'd rather have a super mild winter than a peony garden. there is always a trade.
