Let me tell you… last night I lie awake to the sound of the rumbling thunder echoing through our bedroom. Rain pounded the roof and lightning lit the night sky with each explosive thunder boom. If it hadn’t been for Miss Paisley, there’s a good chance I might have slept right through this grandiose storm. But she likes to keep us informed of these sorts of things. Wink.
As I lay there, all I could thing about was my new peony blooms out there in the thick of it, probably drooping down from the whipping wind and heaviness of the rain. I look forward to the blooming of the peonies every Spring, it’s a big deal for us here. They are most definitely the highlight of the back garden with there brighter than bright happy pink blooms. I almost hopped right out of bed and ran out there in the dark scary night to save them, not to mention my daughter’s sunflower seedlings were most likely swimming in water by now too. Hmm… this was going to be one long night.
PS Not to worry, I saved the sunflowers too. They were soaked!!
PPS Looks like more peonies are on the way. I added a few rose sprigs with the peonies to create a fuller centerpiece this go round.
