. . . go this way and that way
Go this way and that way
Have you even seen a laddie
Go this way and that?
This is a different type of peony, a dwarf peony, that blooms in early spring then dies back in midsummer from the heat. Its leaves are more reminiscent of ferns and the petals are a single row. It is blooming now in our garden, with the breezy weather we have been having making the blossoms sway, this way and that, reminding me of the childhood singing game we used to play.
It is called Laddie. Paeonia peregrina.
