My Favorite Summer Flower...

Saturday, June 16, 2007

I have this New Fondness for an Amazing Flower, A PEONY. I am absolutely Crazy about them. They are so full when they open and the shape is just Beautiful. I really love the colors and the Scent is Lovely. I bought some this week and they just put me in a Happy Spirit. My goal for the Garden is to try to grow some PEONIES. We will have to see, in So. Calif. they are not very Popular. Now dont get my wrong, my heart still belongs to my Orchids, but these Peonies are giving them a run for their money. To start my weekend off just Perfect, I had a Face to Face with a very thick Rattle Snake this morning. Yes, at 6:45 am I had the Fire Department inside my front gate capturing a Rattle Snake. They were so Nice and Not bad on the Eyes either. LOL, Anyway, they got him for me and had to take its Head off be buried. Well, they were my heroes of the day and After I took the kids to school I went and dropped off Doughnuts for the whole station! Thank Goodness I just live up the street from them too. A few Pictures of my New Garden Passion.

the Fire Department comes to get snakes?! well, I didn't know that...that is a handy piece of information...

I love peonies, too...but, unfortunately, they just can't grow in our area & you never see them in shops...

Wow, that must have been scary! Good thing you can call your Fire Department and that was nice of you to bring them donuts. I'm sure they appreciated that. I've never seen peonies for sale in Georgia. They do grow quite well here - except for me of course LOL.

Accck, I hate snakes, I know I wouldn't have even been able to make the phone call. I'm glad they came to your rescue, and I bet they loved the donuts.
