elian1: To all my friends around the world but more especially to a Canadian and a South African friends :) But when the melancholy fit shall fall Sudden from heaven like a weeping cloud, That fosters the droop-headed flowers all, And hides the green hill in an April shroud; Then glut thy sorrow on a morning rose… Keats

Dogwood blossom - The blooms often appear in the shape of a Cross with holes in the tips of the pedals signifying the nails that were driven into the Cross. If you look closely at these holes you can notice a faint red stain representing the Blood. In the center you will find a green bloom symbolizing the crown of thorns placed on the head of Jesus.
Peony 'Sorbet' One of the most beautiful color combinations in the Peony family, 'Sorbet' brings soft, luscious tones to the late spring garden. These blooms are 5 inches wide and tall, with 3 distinct layers of pastel color. Ideal for cutting (they are very long-lasting), they arise heavily on compact plants. 'Sorbet' blooms in midseason, late spring to early summer in most climates, on plants just 3 feet tall and 2 1/2 feet wide.
