She died May 1st, 2007 and after that I promised myself I'd only buy peonies on May 1st (I know, it's kinda strange...) Anyways, last year the peonies were right on time at my favorite, local bodega. This year- nothing. Granted, I was driving halfway across the East Coast on May 1st- but I still looked for them last week. Now they're there. Gah. I missed them by a week. I am so bummed. If you're in NYC, please stop and smell the peonies!!!
I will leave you with the ones from last year. :)
