|First, I loved your story, Larry. I've always been interested in the symbolism of flowers and vegetation. I have tended to concentrate on Zen Buddhist symbolism in Ikebana. I love the Japanese stories and tales of greenery and flowers in the floral design.
This is a picture of a peony that has been in our family for over 100 years. And I know that cuttings from this plant have thrived in gardens of friends of my great grandparents and grandparents.
Northern California... I don't have a piece of this beauty. Living in Phoenix is not good for Peonies.

As a gardener: When planning for a year, I plant corn. When planning for decades, I plant trees. When planning for life, I train and educate people.
