Inspired by Lynne Henderson’s watercolour Paeonia Officinalis
Rustic delight and Japanese grace
Combine in a blustery symphony of
Colours that abound, from
Snowy white and subtle Rose to
Magenta and purple on top.
Found in crystal vessels or lodging in gardens.
Ponderous and slow
But full of mystique and
Duluth, Mme de Verneville, and
Add fragrance to
As feathery leaves waft in
