Frothy cream on petalled plate,
Whipped and mounded, sugared fare;
Seasoned with a fruity mate,
Berry coulis, spread with care.
Foodie’s treasure, served in state,
High-class order, fine cuisine;
Chef’s creation, flavoured bait,
Insects love this sweet canteen!
Peonies are always buzzing with flies, and busy ants, which seem attracted by the sticky substance released by peony buds. Imagine these as patrons at a fancy French Restaurant!
