I confirmed my passion for peonies when I attended my first American Peony Society Convention in 2010. I had never entered a judging before, however, I entered several of my peonies including Bartzella, Bride's Dream, Rosalba and Largo. I received recognition to the "Court of Honor" for my showing of Bartzella. I may never win an award again, but it was truly an honor to be recognized at my first event. Hopefully, there will be more to come!
