Of Peonies, Lavender, Roses and Plates

Long Bloom Poenies!
Going to the greenmarket
as the first sunrays
climb over the roofs
has its rewards!

Here’s Your Sweet Lavender
sixteen sprigs a penny
that you’ll find my ladies
will smell as sweet as any!

Which Is the Fairest One Of All?
Early birds get first crack
at the morning's roses!

Life's Been Handing You Cherries?

  1. Your photos always make my day.. those cherries look so luscious!

  2. The cherries pictures is delectable.

  3. What a splendid solution! Thank you.
    I was just up at the green market.
    This really is the best time of year there.
    HAve a super weekend!

  4. Stunning photos Merisi!
    I love all that Lavender!! Oh My!

  5. I am glad you are a morning person and get the most beautiful flower photos. I love this one of the peonies. Gorgeous.

  6. That purple is so incredibly rich.

  7. It is cherry season! Hurrah!

    I love that photo of the blooms being arranged...I think somewhere in an alternate reality I am a flower-arranger (there must be an actual word for that job). It seems like such a tranquil, meditative thing to do.

  8. Love all the pics and what's one them - the cherry pics is a keeper!

  9. Lovely pictures, as usual.
    I have given you an award.

  10. The peonies against the dark background is a stunning shot!

  11. I especially crave those cherries -- such ruby red gorgeousness.

  12. At my funeral I don't want dirges, I've told my family I want them to live it up a little and sing 'Life is just a bowl of cheries'!
    Cherries, roses and lavender and above all those wonderful peonies. Magic incorporate!

  13. Lavender is one of my favourite scents and here you post such a pretty photo of the flowers. The cherries, too, are quite tempting to reach for.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
