Love the natural lighting. So soft and gentle.

So lovely. I can almost feel their softness.

This is beautiful. I always enjoy your posts, Vicki, but especially the ones this week. You certainly do have a good life.

frills and furbelows - even nature can be a bit over the top.

Peonies are lovely despite their exuberance.

What lovely whirly petals! I am reminded of Toulous-Lautrec's images of Loie Fuller's dancing.

Message to Jim Egerton from another Leon Rusell fan who actually got to see him perform and sort of conduct the proceedings at George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh.

Mind you, years later I worked with a fabulous lady who'd emigrated here from Bangladesh and had absolutely no idea that concert had ever occured.

Vicki, it's grand to visit here and trade info via the comments.

I have always loved The poet Jane Kenyon's poem about peonies. peonies are also a wonderful flower of joyous childhood....you wanted to stick your nose right in them and inhale....hoping not to snag an ant in doing so! Would love to walk your gardens

I planted some in the fall. They've come up but there's no sign of buds. Maybe next year. Yours are beautiful. Do you know the variety? I may get more. :-)

Vicki Lane said...

I don't know what the variety is, Ellis -- I planted them about thirty years ago.
