Learning to Grow: Peonies signal summer’s start

For most people, Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer. For me, the season begins when the peonies bloom. The spring ephemerals have come and gone by now, and I am ready to trade the decidedly tattered and world-weary tulips and daffodils for the lilacs perfuming the air around every corner, the green grass and the peonies. Though their bloom period is short – just about two weeks – these are the days that really signal the end of a chilly, damp spring and the beginning of a season filled with lush blossoms and sunshine.
