Peonies




Isn''t it a wonderful flower? The Peony ... so fragile and colorful, but it can also be a big flower when the Peony is a ''double one".
I had to write another haiku inspired on this haiku by Issa:

the peony falls
spilling out yesterday''s
rain


This is my other haiku on peony:

pink flowers bloom
between green dewy leaves
a double peony


Hm it''s a beauty I think.

Have a nice weekend ... see you another day.

Lovely, I just wish I could have peonies. But roses seems to thrive so they'll have to do.

there is nothing as sweet as the peony's aroma...

I'd forgotten about peonies until I spotted some at a neighbors house tucked against the house...such beauty, especially the doubles in rainbow pastels.
Thank you for the prompt...it was a challenge, but brought back the memory if my mother calling them
pee-OWN-ee's.

Peace, Siggi in Downeast Maine

It's those dark green leaves that accentuate the peony's color.
