Peony Bouquet

Peonies are in season here in Hawke’s Bay.  While my husband & I were out last weekend, we passed by a roadside flower stall on Havelock Road.  Their flowers were fresh cut and irresistible.  So I happily purchased 2 bunches of their short stemmed peonies.  Over the next week I enjoyed watching them open.  It was my first peony bouquet.  What a treat!  I’m sure there will be many more in my future!

Spring Colour

We’ve had such a mild, dry winter that for some flowers, spring started much earlier than normal this year.  Last week I visited Clive Square with a friend of mine and discovered a little patch of anemones.  At first the patch looked a bit sparse & uninteresting.  But once I sat down and viewed them at their level, a whole other world appeared.  Their vibrant colours were captivating.  The Napier city gardeners do such a wonderful job planting the CBD.

By the way, for those of you needlework crafters out there, they also did a beautiful job lacing an hierloom embroidery of mine & reframed it with archival matting.

A Nice Thing About Rain

I like going out & walking through my garden after it has rained.  It’s the little beads of water that the rain drops create on the leaves & flowers that are beautiful to see.  Sometimes they cling right to the edge of the petals & you wonder why they don’t just slip off.

So don’t let a little rain get you down, go out & explore!

Winter’s End

Spring time is only a couple days away & you can see evidence of it everywhere!  I just had to grab the camera and take a drive into the back country of Hawke’s Bay.  Although the weather has been a bit grey recently, the skies did not disappoint.  It was a beautiful morning out & about.
