June is Peony month in this house!




















Being a lover of peonies, June is one of my favorite months. Thank goodness they're staggered or I wouldn't know which one to paint. This one is Coral Dream and Festiva Maxima is shouting out to be painted.
I have lots of different varieties because they love the prairie soil and the sunny days. Tireless workhorses that are so much more than a pretty face!

Hi Tracey,

My interest is stirred and I am looking forward to July's flower and each month after. Just lovely!

Great Idea Tracey. Peonys are one of my favorite flowers two and it has been a good year for them here. T
hanks for all you kind words about Purdy. The kids have moved on to what kind of kitten shall we get! Live moves on eh!

Best wishes

Glad to hear the kids are thinking about the new kitten! The resilience of kids always amazes me. I've painted a few more of the peonies and that's the plan today. Loved the Pearl Jam short!
