there are zero 0 zero 0 zero 0 words

to describe how I feel about peonies —

which I am sure I mispronounce in English:

dahlias are not far behind, i just don’t have many in my garden

i put these in the ground a few years ago, and every now and then separate them — that is it

all photographs untouched — they are just amazing
