The heavy rains battered my peonies ......before I ever got a chance to pick a bunch and enjoy those glorious mounds of cotton candy imitators in my old ironstone pitcher. When they are full blown open, they remind me so much of summer's big fluffy clouds only in gorgeous shades of blush dawn, deep magenta and white.
I was absolutely delighted to find the Mennonite ladies at a local market selling them. I bought all they had (plus their delicious breakfast buns). :) Aren't they gorgeous? I can't decide what Spring flowers I like the best. One day I think it's the delicious scent of the lilacs or the mock orange, then the next day it's the peonies and the gorgeous iris that poke their majestic heads thru the azaleas. They are all so fleeting and oh so sweet and one of life's simple but precious pleasures.
