I'm in love - with a flower. Yes, I know it sounds a little strange but I have a bit of an obsession with Peonies. Mine have not bloomed yet and I'm dying to see them. So when I was casually strolling out the door of my local organic grocer, I was stopped dead in my tracks.
A peony?? This early? I must have looked puzzled because the woman working the florals came up to me and said, "Aren't they lovely?"
I nodded and finally managed to ask what this gorgeous flower was. A hybrid, she said. A cross between a garden rose and a peony. Sigh....it was love at first sight.
I walked home smiling, three amazing flowers cradled in my arms.
Me, my camera and the roses spent the rest of the afternoon together.
Go buy yourself some flowers - you deserve it.
