    the faye school of mowing...
    anything between the grass and mower

  7. It's almost as if they're in jail, and the only way they can be free is to die.

  11. The peony (Paeonia) is named after the Greek god Paean who was known for his skill as a healer. One day, Paean used the root of the peony plant to heal Pluto. Asclepius, the god of healing, himself grew jealous over Paen’s skill and threatened to kill his talented follower. Pluto rescued Paean from a painful death by turning him into the peony flower.
    ... just saying....

  17. Peony does a Houdini trick. I wait so long for them to bloom and if I turn around and sneeze they are fading out already and gone. I wish they would last forever with that vibrant girly girl Pink color.

  21. You'll be interested to know that our peonies have yet to bud. I guess the severe frost we had the other night didn't help huh?

  24. So glad it's not just my peonies doing that - I thought I was supposed to hoist them up or something!

  29. First thing that came to mind was the top peony's saying 'Gesundheit'!

  30. That says "summer in the city." Without any words.

  31. at first these peonies totally reminded me of the jack-o-lantern image that circulated a few years ago where he was throwing up his own seeds...and then my mind threw in a filter to keep the crass thoughts out...

  32. The flowers look like a tale of suicide by one while the other looks on... A really smart picture opportunity...
