Peonies & Pink Martini


Oh the blowzy wonderfulness of peonies. Fat bunches for $6.99 at Trader Joes = happy PK. Buy them tight and they’ll slowly open to the full reach of their exuberant selves.

    Hi Pamela,

    Gorgeous photos of peonies! They are marvelous flowers, aren’t they? A friend recently gave me one from her garden that was as big as a small hat.

    I can’t find your e-mail address, so am leaving a message here for all the world to see/read. Do you need any help or contributions for your July 1st event for S & J? If so, do let me know…

    Looking forward to seeing you then…

    It’s such a good thing I read your blog! I would have never known that the Pink Martini album was out. I just bought it today and can’t wait for a listen. Now about the flowers, do/did your peonies smell? There used to be bushes of them in Nebraska and I’d always stop to have a sniff when I was delivering the afternoon edition of the Omaha World Herald. They smelled heavenly but sometimes the ones out here just smell tired and over travelled.
