I first met the peony during my artist residency at Vermont Studio Center, a remote artist retreat in the hills of Vermont. Peony flowers were everywhere ~ like bougainvillea in the Florida Keys ~ throughout the quaint town of Johnson, where peony bushes graced every yard. I am reminded of that wonderful time of inspiration and renewal each time I visit my portfolio. As native Floridian, my knowledge of this flower comes later in life; however am overjoyed when persons whose love of this bloom take them back to their youth, and share their memories while in my studio.
Love… I think you can spell it P E O N Y.
