The Simple Gift Series — {Today’s Garden}

Once again I forgot to put frames around the peonies.  Perhaps I am propping up so many other things that the heavy flowers are destined to a life bent low.  I can only do so much.

But here are the rescued ones, and my house smells of the sweetness of spring.

    Peonies are a beautiful reminder of how delicately God has created our world. The Michigan peonies are heavy and leaning over too this year.

    Beautiful!!! Love your pictures. Do you remember how Granny used to almost always have vases of flowers in the house, and peonies when they were blooming, and do you remember phlox, too?. They were all summer long. This brought a bit of refreshment to my day, and the hymn verse, too! Thank you, my Julie. (Heart) My Love, Mom
