The Payoff

It’s been really hot here, in the 90’s for the past couple of days. There was no easing into summer temperatures this year though we do get a break in the heat this week. I am not complaining about the heat at all. I prefer it to be warm. I don’t care to be dripping with sweat though.

One thing that’s really enjoying the heat is the flowers. I was pleasantly surprised when I went outside to water and found the Peonies and Poppies in full bloom. They are some of my favorite flowers. Though I probably shouldn’t have planted them next to each other because they clash terribly.

    Your poppies and peonies are beautiful! I think they must look very colorful next to each other. My peonies are blooming too – so far I have 3 different colors (burgundy, light pink, and white). More are coming!

    Just gorgeous … worth the wait indeed 🙂

    As for “clashing” …. if it makes you happy … then that’s all that matters. Enjoy!

    I don’t think I’ve ever thought of flowers as clashing. Those look gorgeous. I hope that it isn’t humid there, that always makes the summer a little less fun.
