May Flowers

April showers certainly brought a bounty of May flowers to Seattle and I'm in heaven! The peonies at the market have exploded. Last week I bought 12 to delight my little apartment. Having fresh flowers in the house is certainly one of the little things in life that brings me so much joy. Peonies have such a lovely scent, it filled the air.

Rhododendrons are Washington's state flower and when they bloom it is miraculous because you realize they are EVERYWHERE! In this area, the bushes can be so old that they have grown to 10 or 15 feet in height. I love seeing them everywhere I go.
