In our family, when something is abundant we call it _________ heaven. For the last couple of weeks, peony heaven describes the bounty that has existed in the garden.
These beautiful blooms don’t last long especially if there is rain that weights them down, so I cannot resist cutting a few every day.
In a variety of containers, they are placed on every flat surface in the house
from the kitchen
to the bathrooms.
Their variations amaze me. There are tree peonies the blooms of which remind me of a ballerina’s tutu.
Peonies come in shades of pink ranging from bubblegum pink to luscious fuchsia.
There are whites, some with layered petals reminding of ruffles,
others flat with yellow centers and tinges of pink.
What is sad is that these beauties last for such a short while, but even as they fade and petals drop I see them as works of art.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
