    Crazy wildlife and a flower

    Now, after seeing the perfect peony and getting the perfect picture… I CUT IT! Yup, that amazing peony was sitting on my kitchen counter for two whole days. It was joined by some old roses from Joe’s grandmother and a dark pink peony. The kitchen smelled AMAZING and made me smile each time I looked at it. BUT….
