Peonies are one of my most favorite flowers. I love all the delicate petals and how they fit together just so, they look like they're made out of sugar, the colors are sugary too, but my favorite are the light pink and dark pink combo flowers. My grandparents used to have peonies at their house, I loved to look at them, and to cut big bunches of them to put in vases. The only problem is they always attract a zillion tiny ants, which of course drove my grandmother crazy.
"Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
