Peony Time

If I had to choose just one flower... well, let's be serious. I'm Libra with Libra rising, it ain't happening.

But I do seriously adore peonies.
One of the plants left in the garden after the great gifting a few years ago is a burgundy peony, and today they were in full bloom. the photo here is from several years back (note the weeds are all pulled in the bed) but I was able to go out and nab some of the blooms to bring inside this morning.
I used up a few of today's spoons, but it was so worth it. They are keeping me company in an old milk bottle, near my chair.
I'll sit here, watch the extras on my full-series-all-10-seasons Stargate DVD set (the best combination birthday/anniversary gift I ever got), and knit Oscar's scarf for this coming winter while the wonderful scent fills the room.
