The Death of a Flower. Not a Poem

Our peonies took a beating from the storms Tuesday night.  They were a sorry sight, and as I always say in such situations, "That is an Ex-Peony!"  Because it's all I can remember from Monty Python's Dead Parrot Sketch. But I know there are many many colorful ways to relate the demise of a mashed flower.  Let's share! To describe the condition of the peony:
1. Passed on!
2. Is no more!
3. Has ceased to be!
4. Expired and gone to meet 'is maker!
5. Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace!
6. Pushing up the daisies! (Oh the irony)
7. 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory!
8. E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisibile!
Ah, they save the best for last.  Are you missing Monty Python yet?  Re-aquaint yourself using our collection.

Dead head those peonies and they'll be good for the rest of the summer-a well trimmed peony is the holy grail of plant recycling-you can put a whole flying circus in one of those recycled peonies!
