Not Gone Entirely

Several years ago, I had a lovely, pink tree peony that just seemed out of  scale for my small space.  I dug it up and gave it to a friend.  Deal done, I thought.

About three years later, I notice peony stalks springing up where the tree peony had been.  What the heck -- I let them grow.  The little stalks grew and gave strength to the root.  Now I have a pink, single peony growing from the original root stalk, and I think I love it.
Sometimes what is at the heart of the matter is more valuable than the externals.
