Spring of Peonies

    When I purchased ‘This Old Dump’ back in December of 1996, there was a lot of dead plants lining the street and driveway. The next spring that turned into these. Every year since they come back and bloom right around Memorial Day weekend without fail. I never do much to them and yet they prosper as if in memory of the original owner who planted them before me (I’m the second owner of the home built in 1945).
