Anticipation...the poor man's rose!

The side of our house has four huge peony bushes! I love them! I always sing "Anticipation....anticipa-a-tion...is making me wait..." as I look at the tight little bulb blossoms waiting to burst into deep pink incredibly fragrant tissue papery flowers! WOW! They smell a lot like roses to me...I guess not the same sort of pretty...the poor man's rose! HA!
Didja know that they must have ants to blossom? I know, I know...I already have an ant problem...but oh well, I wanted to look at and smell them often...and well, I already have an ant problem...so what's a few hundred more!

"The poor man's rose"... maybe, but they are pretty. : ) And you cares, flowers sitting on your table just make you smile for some reason. : )

Oh man, can't believe I actually typed, "And you cares...." I usually proof before I submit. Duh. Blame it on the preggo brain I guess. Yep.... still preggo... bummer.

I didn't know anything needed ants. I was really getting into that flower before that, having to think about what we might be doing with some landscaping and all.

I'm not a rose girl. I actually don't like them. But I don't tell my father-in-law, because they are his favorite flower, like in a really serious way.

Give me a good old daisy, or even a peony, cut from somebody else's anty yard, any day!
