hot afternoon
the sweet weight
of peonies

    What a lovely gift from you, Ann ... like over the fence from a neighbor and without ants. Thanks!

    morning silence
    circling pale flowering weed
    pale yellow butterfly

    Lovely, Ann, I see the bowed heads of the peonies and inhale the hot sun aroma.

    Ed, I love your response . . . "over the fence from a neighbor without ants" The best!

    at your grave
    backyard memories

    Though I've moved and have no peonies in my own garden this year, I have many that belong to the past conjured up again compliments of your evocative words. Many thanks.
