This Flower's a Floozy

My mother set high standards for lady-hood. A lady did not
  • smoke on the street
  • paint her nails
  • use bright red lipstick
  • wear too much makeup
  • chew gum in public
I wonder what she would think, were she still alive, of the peony. Surely, it sets a standard for floral vulgarity. It's almost embarrassingly . . . well . . . pulchritudinous!
