Wild and Perfect

Exquisite creations resembling that exact moment when a conjuror transforms a starched handkerchief into an animated cockatiel. Neither cloth nor bird, these magical confections are Peonies, delicious at every turn of their all too brief existence.

“…with their honeyed heaviness, their lush trembling,

their eagerness,
to be wild and perfect for a moment, before they are

nothing, forever?”
From “Peonies” by Mary Oliver

Peonies are now in season!
