This is a beautiful peony that I grow in my backyard garden. I took this photo a few years ago and I believe the bloom was just about to fade. It was still lovely of course.
This peony has a mild scent. I don’t cut flowers to bring indoors often, but I do sometimes gather a bouquet of peonies and other flowers in bloom in the spring or early summer. The scent is lovely indoors too.
