    • Abstract:
      Peonies have always struck me as a little too showy. They're like the Lady Gagas of the flower world, with too much makeup and cleavage to be taken seriously. But there's something about peonies before they bloom. As buds they're more like bonbons with creamy centers, all the more appealing for the unknown flavors they are hiding. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
