Ants on Peonies: Did you know that Peony flowers can’t open without ants to eat the sugar off the buds? It’s called symbiosis. In the same way, we can’t live without each other, although in the case of people, it’s not our extra sweetness that needs to be removed. Peonies exist to remind us of what sweetness looks like. I want to be a big, flamboyant flower blossom, too. Don’t you?
Yes, it’s true. The Garden Journal, Planner & Log Book will be carried in the Pennsylvania Horticultural Societies on-site store.
Thank you to the Philadelphia Flower Show for the tweet and the compliment. I’m honored to be included in this proud tradition.
What fun! I would love to go to this show. Scotland, can you imagine? My grandmother’s maiden name was Scott. I would feel at home. Maybe meet a relative.
