look what i found in my garden this morning...
a beautiful, single bloom on my peony tree !!!
i spotted it, first from my kitchen window,
glowing in the morning light,
its beauty beckoning me to come take a closer look.
so i grabbed my camera...and of course it was perfectly photogenic from every angle.
i planted this peony tree because i fell in love with one similar to it down the road.
thank goodness patience is a strong trait of mine...
because it only took five years to finally bloom !!!
here it is again...opening up even further to soak in the afternoon sun.
(hoping the deer stays away just a little longer)
