Nothing tempts me to blow ten bucks like a bunch of peonies. I can talk myself out of pretty much every other non-essential purchase. But peonies give me so much joy that they are worth the expense.


I was pleased to discover that Ruby shares my passion. At least that’s the only explanation I could come up with for why there were a couple dozen photos of my most recently acquired bouquet of peonies on my camera.

Some of them were a little blurry, but glorious none-the-less. Like whipped cream with raspberries. Delicious.
