Where have all the flowers gone?

Sitting in my family room watching the rain splash against the window..Juneary is back. Feels like winter. The rain was coming down so hard, and I was awakened to a gushing sputtering sound from the downspout. Ahhh summer come on, you can do it!

A few days ago I revisited the peony fields, hoping that they hadn't been disturbed from the previous monsoon we had endured.  The sloping terrain was still colorful and pinks, whites, and fuchsia colors were evident to the next horizon.

During these rainy days, I love to look back on photos of the things I found on rainless days. Hoping there will be more rainless days coming soon.

This is my favorite rose. A friend gave it to me years ago as a thank you for helping her move. To me it's the perfect pink. When I think of pink, this is the color that floats in my mind. It's called Bewitched, and I loved the little mystical green spider I found sitting inside the first bloom of the season.

I cannot imagine the glory of a field of peonies. Each photo was stunning, but the peony field has my imagination flying.
