The sun was so pretty on the peonies this morning that I couldn’t resist sharing a few more photos of them in full bloom.
In my line of work, space structures, we used to refer to the old-wise-ones as “gray beards” (people who had gray beards they could stroke as they pondered and offered wisdom). No place in that system for someone who has no capacity to grow a beard… maybe why I retired young.

The salmon berry is unusual in that it has a bright pink flower. Seems like most other berries have white or pale pink ones. The color of the berries is usually orange, but can be on the red side if they get sun (since it tends to grow in dense woods that is an anomaly). It’s called “salmon berry” because the orange berries look like a cluster of salmon roe. It is kind of watery and doesn’t have a strong flavor, either sweet or tart, compared with thimble-berries, huckleberries or blackberries.
But in the case of this rose that’s not a bad thing.
This is an English rose in a neighbor’s garden. It’s blooming a bit earlier than most this year.
A little late for Brashley Photography’s Twirling Tuesday.
