Happy Early Mother's Day, Old Gray Mare!

Peonies remind me of my mother more than any other flower. We had lots of gorgeous peony shrubs in our backyard when I was growing up. Now I have some in my garden, too.

Since tomorrow is The Martini Club post, I thought I would put this up for my mumsie a day early.

Happy Early Mother's Day, Mom!

Lots of love,

I adore peonies.

Happy Mother's Day to you too sweetie.

Dear sweet Penny,

Thank you for the lovely message and the gorgeous bouquet of posies. Lush and potently fragrant, those blooms are mysterious and addictive. You are always in my heart, and I wish you showers of peony petals on your special day.

Love and warm hugs, Old Gray Mare xxxxx

Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. They have such a wonderful smell! We had some at our home in Maine and I miss them! Happy Mother's Day to you, Penny!

Remember when I cut off all the peony flowers and tried to make perfume? Sorry 'bout that. :^)


Love, Penny Jr.

Hi Julia....Happy Mom's Day! My mom had an awesome collection of pink and white ones. I also have an apricot-colored variety. They smell so good!
