A Peony Extravaganza



I just returned from eight beautiful days in Seattle. The sun was shining, the sky and water sparkled, the vegetation glowed with the energy and vibrancy of life.

While I was there I stayed with my brother, Giancarlo, and his girlfriend, Debra, in the home they share and where they spend their days creating culinary and garden magic. I started taking photos before boarding the train in Emeryville and stopped when I got back home in San Francisco, for a grand total of 595 photos and videos. I think I should have enough material for several weeks of posts!

Peonies in all their glory, nurtured and coddled by Giancarlo and Debra in their Seattle garden.

Those peonies are beautiful. I have several in my garden, but recent rains have driven their petals to the ground.

Awesome flower. Awesome photos. I never paid attention to peonies before but lately I have and have decided that they are one of my fave flowers. Love them.
