Peonies are grand, magnificent flowers. Little wonder then that they have inspired myths and folklore and are revered in the East as a symbol of good luck, romance and honor. And little wonder that artists continue to find fascination with this subject in paintings and photographs - even in ecards as my card "Peony" illustrates :)
