To Pick or Not To Pick
Garden Reports and Rejoicing – May 30
That’s the question. With the recent warm weather the peonies are popping. I could cut a dozen fragrant bouquets, and in fact, have already gathered half that many and filled vases that perfume the house. But I’m always a bit torn. Do I cut as many flowers as possible or do I leave them so I can enjoy their presence in the garden?
Tonight I decided that this is an unnecessary dilemma. Whether these blossoms grace the garden or a vase indoors probably doesn’t matter. The important thing is that they are savored.
