On The Other Hand

I couldn't end the week with such a depressing topic, so I will send us into the weekend with a smile. The peonies are blooming.

Buds turn into


Which this industrious little honey bee was making good use of.


  1. I just love peonies!! I have yet to plant any here yet but sure plan too.

  2. So pretty, I love the colour pink. How could you not smile looking at this lovely flower.

  3. I stinkin' can not grow peonies!!! It is so hot here!!!

  4. Judy, get planting! They are just too pretty not to have. I counted tonight and I have 10 bushes, but only four of them are really large. They all came with the farm. Like the rhubarb.

    Liss, the bee is the best part. It is a smile maker!

    Queen, I'm sorry you can't grow them. But there are many beautiful things we can't grow here because it's too stinkin' cold. : )

  5. I could bask in the smell of the peony...save for the ants! I don't blame them for being around that sweet smell and ruffled petals.


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
