…….bring May flowers. It has been raining here all weekend. A nice, steady, soaking Spring rain. You can almost see the earth coming to life. The tulips are almost spent and it’s time for the early Summer perennials to emerge.
Before the rain, I stopped by my Mother’s house (yes, we’re still trying to work our way through that mess) and wandered around her backyard. She used to have such a wonderful garden. And I thought that whom ever buys that house will have such a great start to a garden. Even though it is so over grown now, you can see the “good bones” peeking through the vegetation. I walked around to the side of the house and saw them……they took my breath away……big FAT peonies, in full full bloom! Two gorgeous shrubs packed with blooms.
I never realized that she had peony bushes. I wondered why she never cut any and brought them in the house?
I thought that a pretty bouquet would be perfect to take to Heather, since she can’t get out much right now. I found the only thing that I could to put them in. A turquoise plastic drinking pitcher. And cut a pretty bouquet. I was so proud of my silly self. I took them in the house……so THAT’S why she never brought them in!
3 words……STINK STANK STUNK!!!
Yuk! They smelled as bad as they were pretty!
So……out came the camera. These photos are for YOU Heather.
And for ALL of YOU in blogland.
Pretty Spring Peonies!
Who knew that cheesy turquoise plastic would turn out to be the perfect container to photograph! NOT ME!
Enjoy your week everyone!
