a smidge of peonies


it's a sunny day here in southern california. a bit of a chill, at least for us (i.e. i am still insisting on wearing my cashmere hoodie and wool slippers that look like foot sweaters). the reality is that spring is on its way and i couldn't be happier. mostly because that means trader joe's will have bunches of peonies. my very favorite.

Beautiful. Trader Joe has the best (and not overpriced) flowers!

I wish we had a Trader Joe's! I love Peonies but never find them, unless I plant a bush myself!

Personally, I enjoy the miniature potted bushes of pink and white heather and TJ's own Belgian Truffle Brownie mix! But maybe it'll be peonies for me this season!

I love peonies! What a cool picture of them. I don't, however, love Trader Joe's. I prefer a little less plastic-wrapped, a little less traveled on a truck from all over food.

I almost skipped over this shot and now I am glad I did not.

I LOVE the low composition. It makes me wonder what is beneath the photo! Nice to see a great shot which gets away from the thirds.
