I love having fresh flowers in the house. They make the house smell good and look pretty. Throughout the year I may have lilacs, roses, iris, peonies or even wild flowers, depending on what’s blooming outside. Today it is iris and peonies.

I all sways get a little giggle about the peonies. The red one is called “Prince of Darkness” and the white one is “Shirley Temple”. They grow right next to each other. Maybe planting them in close proximity was my subconscious way of trying to prove that opposites can grow and thrive peacefully. But that is too deep a thought for this morning. Gotta make some coffee and get ready for work! I hope you all have a good day and make life DIY!
