    SEASONAL BEAUTIES FROM THE SOILS OF THE WAIRARAPA

  • The Season

    Our peony season comes each year when the peonies let us know they are ready. They usually start stretching their beautiful blooms towards the sun around early/mid October and continue blooming until the end of November. Wairarapa rains and frosts and sunshine hours dependent.

  • By The Peonies

     

    From a collection called "The World" by Czeslaw Milosz

     

    The peonies bloom, white and pink.

    And inside each, as in a fragrant bowl,

    A swarm of tiny beetles have their conversation,

    For the flower is given to them as their home.

     

    Mother stands by the peony bed,

    Reaches for one bloom, opens its petals,

    And looks for a long time into peony lands,

    Where one short instant equals a whole year.

     

    Then lets the flower go. And what she thinks

    She repeats aloud to the children and herself.

    The wind sways the green leaves gently

    And speckles of light flick across their faces.
