We've been dodging showers here the last while.
I'm not in charge of mowing the lawn but all the talk about wondering if the lawn will get mowed before the next shower comes...
makes me feel a part of the process.
I'll talk more about mowing lawn another day.
This is the pure white peony that blushes next to it's pink neighbour.
I love the real rain drops on it.
Have you ever seen fake raindrops on fake flowers?
The inspiration for that idea was real...
The buds are all opening.
I'm sending home big bouquets of buds whenever I can with visitors.
Have you ever really taken in the scent of peonies?
A few years ago I was in an upscale clothing shop and stopped to test out their lovely display of beautiful bottles of scent.
I was so taken with the Peony scent when I sprayed it on that I was on my way to the counter ...
thinking it was priced fairly reasonable.
Upon closer inspection I realized it was room scent.
I put it back.
It didn't seem like a bargain to squirt it into mid-air in the middle of a room...
though I would have enjoyed it.
This is my favorite view out the front door.
When the storm clouds gather in the background...
the lush berry field and the perfectly leafed trees on the hillside never cease to bring me happy moments.
He got the lawn mowed.
I nearly always go out afterwards to
the clouds make a perfect drop back for the reminder of God's promises.
Happy weekend dear ones.
I'm going to retreat with my beloved and if time and a notion presents itself..
I'll post a photo or two.
all for now...
