Spring, Almost

                   The sunshine gleams so bright and warm,
                   The sky is blue and clear.
                    I run outdoors without a coat,
                   And spring is almost here.
                   Then before I know it,
                   Small clouds have blown together,
                   Till the sun just can't get through them,
                   And again, it's mitten weather.


Peonies are by far my favorite flower. They are so gorgeous. I have several plants in my garden and can't wait each year for them to bloom.

Just a couple more months!

I do wish they lasted longer than a few weeks, because they add so much beauty to my garden.

Their blooms have a very strong fragrance which is lovely outside, but I find a bit overpowering indoors. I love bringing cut flowers in the house though, so I do sneak some in once in awhile. :)

Here are a few of pictures from my garden:
