13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Young Peony

I greet every June feeling great because that is when the Peonies bloom. They are named after a doctor called PAEON according to Greek Myth. Science has discovered over 262 healing compounds in their roots according to Wikipedia. I know for a fact that I feel Alive and Well when they bloom.
