My neighbour Josephine brought me a fully bloomed peony from a tree in her garden today. It’s Schiaparelli pink and it belonged to Josephine’s mother, who divided the root and gave one part to Jo and the other to her sister. I’ve never really thought about the lifespan of a peony, but this one is almost eighty-years-old. Peonies are my absolute favourite –– the grande dame of flowers.
