It has been all about the sunny days and making the most of the weather, until late yesterday when the rain clouds descended. It was long overdue, as the grass and plants in our back garden needed a good soaking. L asked me why peonies were my favourite flower, I managed to bore her with my answer. I gleefully explained that the texture and scent of this flower reminded me of summer days filled with happiness and romance with natures beauty and how when the flower blooms in seems to full of endless amounts of petals....yawn! She laughed as I told her I snapped about 86 photos of our bouquet on the kitchen table.
