Soon my precious. Soon.
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.
~ William Wordsworth, “Lines Written in Early Spring” (1798)

While mine is not nearly as beautiful as Bonnie’s, I am thankful at least one blossom waited until after the rainstorms this weekend to bloom. Looks don’t matter anyway.. they still smell delightful!
Not pictured is a gorgeous spiderweb between my two plants with a very content looking spider in the middle and a sad fly trapped off to one side. That is why this photo is at an odd angle, I had to avoid disturbing the spider!
It’s been rainy and grey most of the past two weeks. The peonies look almost ready to burst.
