I planted 3 Peonie bushes in one of my front flower beds this year. I decided to add these gorgeous plants to my yard after staring longingly at my neighbor's mature bushes that have been in bloom for weeks. I know we're told not to covet our neighbors things, but hey....now I don't have to.
Here is my first bloom that I cut from one of the three bushes. The scent of these makes me want to fill my yard with all of the different varieties. I think I will.

ps. if you're wondering how I was able to get such a black background...my kitchen table is black. It is becoming quite handy.

Baby Blues

I have been blessed to have 2 beautiful little girls. Both of them have these crisp blue eyes that are as wide open as they can get all the time. I guess she is making sure she doesn't miss anything.
