peony season past
The Botanic Garden’s peonies are nearly gone, after a glorious and early bloom. So are most of the spring seasonals, and they appeared in a confluence unlike most springs I’ve seen here…the peonies came with the early cherries and lasted for weeks. Then the tulips, the later cherries, the lilacs, the wisteria, the bluebells, and now the later lilacs, whose shape and smell I’ll never forget.
In other news, my harmonium arrives this week.
