The Next One

The roses and peonies are the next flowers to bloom. These were brought as decoration to the baby shower my office and my husband's office teamed up to have for us about a week and a half ago. They were beautiful and they smelled so sweet! I had them on my dining table and when we got home from work and opened the door, a very pungent, sticky-sweet aroma greeted us. This bouquet of flowers has, unfortunately, passed on to the next phase of life: the compost heap. But I sure loved them while they lasted!

Lovely bouquet! I can never get peonies to really open up anymore :-(. Used to.

These are gorgeous, Becky. I love roses like these, and peonies are one of my favorite flowers. Lots of them here

You asked how hot it gets here---in the 90's in the summer....

Beautiful flowers are a great reminder of the fragility and briefness of our life span...and also the glory possible during that span...

These are certainly beautiful!
