I only have two peony bushes. They are both showing fabulously this week. I think a bridal bouquet of peonies would be stunning.
This volunteer purple plant is about 2 and a half feet tall.
I think it is a pea plant of some kind.
What do you think?
Fireman is not inclined to think it is a pea as there are no little tendrils on the plant. Sure looks like a flowering pea to me.
Do you know a perennial pea?
From Pea to Pie...
I made the cats a toy yesterday out of a Priority Mail box.
I just cut a few holes in the top and put a toy or two inside...within minutes they were entertained.
If you've never lived with a cat, let me tell you what the rest of us know. They love ordinary objects for toys.
Ping pong balls, Milk jug lids, empty toilet paper rolls,
and brown paper bags.
Please keep Lynn and her cat Nicole in your thoughts.
Lynn reads the blog, knits and adopted two of our fosters Fixie and Bonk a few years ago. She is the best cat momma.
Her Nicole may have FIP even though she is quite a bit older.
It can lay dormant for a long while.
Just this week Lynn helped find a home for two abandoned cats.
She has a huge heart and its breaking in that way our hearts break when we know it is time ....
Nicole has brought her simple pleasures for many years.
Oddly enough, my latest simple pleasure is crochet washcloths.
I have a lovely pink cotton blend from Al for Mother's Day.
I need some new washcloths and I can gift some as well.
Sometimes crochet is such a great pleasure.
So if anyone wants to ID that plant that looks like a pea to me,
that would be great.
I'm reading a bit too:
*400 Calorie Fix Cookbook
I'm going to try their Oven-baked Fries

(Fireman is reading Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords book,
What are you reading and stitching ???
