Current Beauty

I've always been one to love roses - 
the blooms, the amazing scent -
then Jesse's aunt gave us cuttings 
from her peony bushes.

My love for roses hasn't changed,
but I discovered peonies 
are just as beautiful
and just as fragrant.

I perhaps owe having become 
a painter to flowers.  
Claude Monet

From this photo I can see why Mr. Monet
would make such an assertion.
