the case of the purloined peonies....




The wife is headed out of town for a couple of days and I am giving her a handful of small vases to pass around to some of our various cousins. They are on the table at dinner and she is like
"this black one wobbles" and I am like
"I know, the bottom is uneven, but its gorgeous eh?" and she is like
"its mine, and I bet it looks great with white flowers" and after dinner we are walking the dogs
over by our neighbors the gun nuts and I am making sure at least one of my dogs poops in their side yard (you think I am kidding, don't you? let's just say that me and the dogs have visited their side more than once today) and I see a small and gorgeous peonie bush with gorgeous white blooms and I tell the wife
"cover for me" and pull out the pen knife and snip the white bloom for her....

Haha...can just imagine you stealthily (is that even a word?) sneeking under the bushes to snip a peony. And, the vases are all so pretty with the peonies and the heart shaped scones are making me hungry...

too funny, you're gonna get shot at one of these days if you aren't careful

I love that your rebellion involves both poop and peonies.

As a gardener who has had treasured flowers--and whole plants--stolen from my garden, I gotta tell you, this is not cool. And I hate gun nuts, too...now dog poop is ok, 'cause you're giving 'em something, not stealin' sumthin' ya know what I mean? Other than that, I love you and Maude and Georges and critters...

peonies are my favorite... and if i had an abundance of them i wouldn't mind if you stole one or two (actually i would invite you over to pick them).
