Summer

It is summer, the weather has been very good for several weeks. Plants and grass are probably happy that the heat  has been taken over by rain and gray clouds, lasting one week from now or more. Time to go inside and look for all the sweaters and warm clothes, which have been stored somewhere in a moment of “weatherly” optimism.

Peony – the king is back.

 
     

Some months ago, I posted a photo from my archive of a Peony.  One of the comments to that picture, was from the Japanese artist Drue Kataoka, who told me that the Peony is known as “the king of flowers.” I think this title is well deserved, I love this plant, and now that the time has come to enjoy fresh flowers, its clear that it is a king that is back.
I picked the first flowers yesterday, and as I promised in April, I was thinking of the Peony fans that wrote comments back then; Mrs. Uhdd , pbsweeny , Erika , Drue and Melinda . I wish you, and every other Peony-fan, a profusion of kings.
