My housekeeper Lily Mei and her family come to view the peonies

Last month I shared my peonies with many visitors at my farm.  I must say that the peony bed is an amazing thing to see.  My housekeeper, Lily Mei, asked if she could bring her family so that they, too, could enjoy the display.  The peony, after all, is a traditional floral symbol of China and is used extensively in Chinese art.  It is known as the flower of riches and honor and symbolizes wealth and distinction.  I, of course, welcomed Lily's family and was amazed at how many arrived that day.  We had a lovely time.  Please enjoy these photos of my splendid peonies.
