Happy Mother’s Day!

peonies 010

When we bought our first house which was an old bungalow I inherited the most gorgeous Peonies  bushes I had ever seen. I was so smitten with the gorgeous pink flowers that I decided to clip a few and bring them inside to put in a vase on the dining room table. I placed them in a beautiful crystal vase on the kitchen counter and made a quick run to the store. When I returned there were zillions of little ants all over the counter AND the flowers. From then on I always washed them well before cutting and placing the stems in a vase. Hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
