The Frozen Flower Adventure

I was pretty excited to have a bunch of peonies in the fridge to sell this weekend.  I went out this morning to check on them & add some more to the bucket, and there was ICE on top of the water.

Oops.  It’s a new-to-us refrigerator, and I guess the temperature was adjusted to overzealously-cold.

The peonies are thawing right now.  I hope they still look nice for Saturday!

    Excellent post.

    Please allow me to add something about this wonderful flower:

    The peony or paeony (Paeonia) is the only genus in the flowering plant family Paeoniaceae. They are native to Asia, southern Europe and western North America.

    Most are herbaceous perennial plants 0.5–1.5 metres tall, but some are woody shrubs up to 1.5–3 metres tall. They have compound, deeply lobed leaves, and large, often fragrant flowers, ranging from red to white or yellow, in late spring and early summer. In the past, the peonies were often classified in the family Ranunculaceae, alongside Hellebores and Anemones.
