        Thanks Nikki 🙂. I did manage to see a lot of amazing Peonies though – at the Botanical Garden. So the journey was fruitful or rather flowerful 😄.


        1. Hi only replying now but that is great news. I need to go back to Germany to explore more. I don’t think I even went to the botanical garden.
