the peonies . . .

. . . are showing off in the botanic garden right now.
These are Japanese tree peonies, those big, blowzy
beauties that I love at every stage of their colorful bloom.

[Today is Mellow Yellow Monday. To see more yellow, go here.]

  1. Ooooh, I won't see peonies 'for real' for nearly six months. Thank you for treating me to these beauties. You've helped tide me over a little, Alexa.

  4. My paternal grandmother loved peonies, which she called "pineys"!

    A DAY WITHOUT YELLOW

    A day without yellow is drear.
    (At least, that’s what I think, my dear.)
    Without the gold touch,
    There just isn’t much
    To give life a sparkle—that’s clear!
