It's always a momentous time for me when I get my first peonies of the season. Just an hour or so ago, these peonies were tiny buds at the florist. They literally bloom in front of your eyes within minutes of leaving the florist's fridge. I am eagerly awaiting the height of peony season when cheaper varieties become available - at $12 a stem, these beauties are quite the unnecessary luxury.
