    Suggestions for a complementary quote, a word that these mandala images evoke, or some history or other information about the flower itself are most welcome, as are corrections to my flower identification if I've got it wrong and any other comments you'd care to make.

    I'd also appreciate identification of the specific cultivar, if applicable.

    Thanks,

    David, I'm not so sure this is a tree peony, it looks more like the herbaceous perennial type to me.
    It would be helpful if you could post a picture of the entire plant.

    Unfortunately, all I have is this other view of the flower. But here it is in case it helps with identification.

    BillofNYC, can you say a little about why you use almost exclusively Alan Watts for your quotes? What does he mean to you and who was/is he to you? Thanks! My own limited knowledge of him (mostly from online) gives me none of the context.
