so much promise...

 the tag said thunderbolt and that's a powerful name if ever i heard one.  i wanted them for a bridal bouquet.  the color was perfect.  sure they're ridiculously expensive but tree peonies are special.  they say WOW and that center...full on gorgeous.  the only thing that rivals their beauty is their fragility. got them back from market fine and immediately put them in the cooler so they can drink and relax until i needed them.  but i guess the commute to the location was rough.  while they appeared fine at first, when i went to arrange them, they fell apart.  and there's no salvaging, no life support, no nothing -- just a petal-less flower.

i brought them home even in their less than perfect state.  no one ever got to see how beautiful they were but i remember...
