I’m three days late, but I’m delighted that it’s February — alongside old favorites like Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day, it’s also a birthday month for a dear friend and for G.
When I lived in Boston and Washington, February was the month where I would start pining (in earnest) for spring. And that is why I always loved to buy and/or receive peonies in February, my favorite, favorite flower.
Happy Birthday, B! I’m sending great, big fluffy peony thoughts to you. Happy Birthday, G! I wish I could be there with you.
