The peonies actually came from my parents' garden behind the house they built in a field of peonies. An abundance of plants in many colors flourished there, but not here.
Seeing these flowers actually blooming is like a sign of good fortune to me. Of course, we've had lots of rain this year which has helped the plants thrive. I wonder why seeing a peony blooming at last can raise spirits and create a feeling of happiness. Whatever the reason, I am glad.
What makes you happy?
