Recipes, memories and random thoughts from my kitchen

Many years ago, my dear elderly friend Peggy gave me a peony to plant. She cautioned me as to just the right depth to plant it, so we followed her instructions and the peony did thrive in spite of my rather brown thumb. It didn't bloom for a few years, but every year the bush has gotten bigger and healthier looking. For the past few years it has had quite a few blossoms.
This year there were a dozen or so buds,
but a heavy rain before they had all bloomed did wreak some havoc. Thankfully, I had gotten a few pictures before the rain came.
I think Peggy would be pleased (and maybe surprised) to see how her peony bush is thriving!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
