Peony Love

Don't you just love a blowsy, overblown peony?  I can't get enough of their full pink or white skirts, their buxom form is just a joy to look at!  I know I've posted pics before but just can't resist showing you these!

The peony is named after Paeon, a student of Asclepius,the Greek God of medicine and healing. When Asclepius became jealous of his pupil Zeus saved Paeon from the wrath of Asclepius by turning him into the peony flower.  The Peony is a close relative of Runuclus, another flower that I love, a smaller version, not so top-heavy I suppose, but just as captivating in it's own way.
