“To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat.”
John Beverley Nichols (English, author, playwright, journalist, composer, and public speaker. 1898-1983)

We had a storm early this morning with very heavy rain and hail. I had placed tomato cages around my peony plants in early April for support, but they were still sagging to the ground due to the rain. There was an abundance of blooms though, so this evening I cut a number of stems to make a bouquet to place in the house. Their fragrance is simply delectable.
