It’s been raining here for what seems like weeks. I am sure it is only days, but man, I am sick of the rain. So it’s only natural that when I saw these I had to buy them.
Yes, peonies. In December. Not in season here, so probably from someplace on the other side of the world. I did think of that before I bought. I hesitated. But then I scooped up two bunches and brought them home.
I’m not feeling very festive these days. And it bothers me. It bothers me a lot. I am not sure how I can change it either. I really want to feel all Christmas-y and excited. I do. I think the rain and the gray skies are a big part of it.
So basically, I treated myself. I spent $34 dollars on 10 peonies so that I would smile every time I saw them. I’m tricking myself and it’s working little by little.
Snow would help, too. Come on, Jack Frost. Bring it on.
