I have no idea what that really means. I have heard it said may times over the years and I think it has something to do with, "If it's in my garden it's mine." So with that mind set I looked at this bloom protruding through the fence into "my space" and thought"OH, baby you are for me." Peonies are so beautiful. The Japanese needle women embellished their Kimonos with these gorgeous blooms. Takes my breath away. Once I had dangled it upside down to shake out the ants it was ready for my table. I have enjoyed this exquisite beauty all week. Now the bud is beginning to open. Lovely.
