It's not only the official state flower of Indiana, it's also one of my favorites. Something the original owner and I share in common. Mrs. Kurtz left us a beautiful legacy of peonies. Lots and lots of peonies. Here are samples of what's in bloom this week.
And my absolute personal favorite, which I consider an "antique pink", below. Not in full bloom yet, maybe tomorrow.
Thank you Mrs. Kurtz.
