My Memorial Day Peonies are blooming a month early! And the Fern Leaf Peony is early too. Maybe my old fashioned and usually late peonies will be blooming for Memorial Day this year. Both of these peonies came from my Mother's garden, she got them from her Mother. I have my Grandma's peonies. Grandma always said rather than taking flowers to the cemetary, to plant something where you can see it to remember her. My Mother told me the same thing. I hope my daughter takes up gardening sometime.
