A Simple Pleasure....

Last week I got to go to our local farmers market.  It is very small, and it was a drizzly day so not many vendors were there.  However, a lady from a local farm that has a pick your own strawberry patch, was there.  She had strawberries, and veggies, and baked goods, and.....freshly cut peonies!!

She was selling 10 stems (some having multiple blooms) for $3!!  Yes, I bought a bunch!  Then Little Monkey talked me into buying a bunch for her!  She wanted them in her room, they smell so good!
The peonies lasted about a week and a half, and I still have 4 left, they were tight buds when I bought them. 

Peonies are definitely one of my favorites!  They make me smile.
Hope you are smiling now!


  1. So pretty! And a great deal! Peonies are one of my favorites too.

  2. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, too. Yours are gorgeous! I need to go to the Farmer's Market here and see if they have any.....
