Today is the Day!

Today is the day that Allison Aller is flying from Washougal, Washington to the East Coast for Allie Fest 2009.

Imagine my delight this morning when I went into the yard to snip some flowers for Allie's room, and I saw this~~~!


Oh, I wish you could smell it!

The Chinese consider the tree peony to be the "king of flowers" and regard this showy flower as a symbol of good fortune, high honor, and the spring season.

What better way to greet our very own Queen of Flowers than with the King!

There's going to be a lot happening in the next week or so. I'll do my best to come back and tell you all about it!

Most people can grow peonies without trouble, and I used to. Wonder why I can't anymore? Oh, well, I love your photo!
