I love big old peonies, so I can’t wait till they start blooming again this year. This white one is from the gardens at Mill Creek Park in Youngstown, Ohio.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    I love them, too. My mom used to have the pettiest pink ones many years ago.

  • So did mine – the deep pink ones are my favorite.
