Peony Season

It's peony season in Michigan!
One of our favorite places on Earth is the Peony Garden at Nichols Arboretum.  Matt and I had a picnic lunch on the grass, surrounded by peonies in full bloom on June 15, 1997.  It was a celebration of Matt's birthday and our engagement.  He asked me to marry him at midnight on the first minute of his birthday!
We had fun bring the boys to the Peony Garden last week, and they were amazed by the huge blooms.  My mom also has some beautiful peonies blooming, and the first two pictures are her blooms!
