I watch the Martha Stewart Show practically every day. By the way, I hate her politics, but I love her style. I'm interested in a lot of the things she is interested in. Every spring, she starts talking about her peony garden. It is huge with maybe a couple of hundred peony plants.
Peonies, like lilacs, are a mystery to me, because we don't have them this far south. I loved the lilacs when I lived in Iowa and Colorado. They were magnificent. There were big, tall, long hedges of lilacs--absolutely beautiful. The smell was almost overwhelming.
Peonies have huge flowers and many of them are pink. I decided to start naming my crochet projects. So instead of calling this afghan a pink and green afghan, I am now calling it my peony baby pink afghan.
Silly huh? Maybe. But I am practicing my word pictures. Some of you that know about peonies, got a picture in your mind didn't you?
