C’mon, let’s dance

With throbbing drums and brassy fanfare, the tree peonies have splashed into the garden. Their festive color, flouncy heads, and fragrance of yesterday’s roses grab my attention with a smile.


Their breathless invitation– “Come with me. We’ll have a good time.” –sets my imagination to working.


For a shy person like me, such invitations always make me hesitate. And then, alas, my chance has slipped by.

    1. Hi Barb — It’s a summer garden, so in the spring (now) there is a certain excitement as new life unfolds. Let me know when you’re in the neighborhood.
