I clipped a bouquet of peonies from the garden this evening. It felt like I was saying hello to old friends.
Lilacs, lupines and now peonies... the summer season of a blossoming landscape has begun.
This bouquet of peonies is adorning our entry table. They are the first thing you see when you walk into the house.
Having moved into our rental house in October, I am not sure what blossoms will greet us in the next several months. When I saw the first peony shoots come up a few weeks ago, I declared quite enthusiastically, "Oh, peonies..!"
I wonder what treasured flower will come next.
Have a lovely weekend!
