Texture Tuesdays ...

Carried Away
Kim Klassen Texture : Aurora
our 2nd peony bush has bloomed & I couldn't resists picking some for indoors ...
 used my apron as a flower gatherer for peony & salvia
ruffles

I like to think
a flower opens itself
to outgrow its plantedness
that it yearns
to be
carried away

Hi Deb! Peonies are my favorites! Unfortunately they don't grow this far south booooohooooo

Jen Kershner said...

Beautiful! I planted to peonies last spring and I only got one little bloom this year. I sure hope I have better luck next year otherwise I think I'm going to have to move them!

Deb said...

Hi Meredith - I wish they lasted longer ... my front garden is full of peonies at the moment ♥

Deb said...

Thank you Lori Ann ♥ I think I take a few photos a day of them :-)

Deb said...

Hi Kit - so nice to hear from you ... Archer sends his love to your 3 sweeties ♥ yes ... kindred spirits!

Deb said...

Hi Julie Marie - this is the apron I made & attached the beautiful vintage doilie you gave me ♥ With the peony, I also brought in a large spider and lots of ants :-D

Deb said...

Thank you Sandy - one of my favourites too ... did not know they didn't grow in your corner of the world ♥

Deb said...

Hi Jen
I planted my peony years ago, but I do remember they start off slow ... next year you will probably get 3 blooms :-) well worth the wait though ♥
