I feel like I should be tired of peonies by now, but I don’t think it’ll ever happen. Maybe it’s because of the long break we get after each spring peony season. I’m sure once springtime comes back around, we’ll all be dying for peonies to take over our Instagram feeds again. Just you wait. :)
A couple months ago, I randomly googled peony gardens in Oregon and found out there was one just 45 minutes from me! My friend Bee and I drove over to the Adelman Peony Gardens in Salem and marveled over how many different types of peonies there were. Each type was on display with a special name/description. We were even given little booklets that helped us identify each peony. So freakin’ cute.
It wasn’t exactly the kind of place where you could run through fields of peonies (still need to cross that off my bucket list) but it was amazing nonetheless. Aren’t those stripey ones the prettiest? See, I’m already forgetting the fancy peony names we learned.
Are you a shameless peony lover too? They’re quickly disappearing from every grocery store in town and it’s bumming me out! Till next time.
