Image  The mockingbird outside, a lonely bird, won’t stop calling!  It’s been going on for hours.  Now, I love the mockingbird’s chorus of songs, but I need my sleep, so please go to sleep dear bird! 

Woman as machine describes my work week.  No time for creative thoughts or activities (almost).  No time to check on blog posts.  I haven’t opened my e-mail all week which means I haven’t read anybody else’s posts.  I will try to catch up today.

Here’s a painting to brighten the day.  Hope it’s a WONDERFUL day for you (and me)!

    Lovely Peony! My first apartment was dubbed “The Peony Palace” and your flowers remind my of that younger silly time.

    Peony, peace, calm, beauty. I hope your week settles into a slower pace.

  3. I love the bold colors of this painting – they definitely brighten my day! 🙂

  4. Peonies always remind me of my Mom. She had many bushes of all colors in her yard and loved to bring them in and make beautiful bouquets with them. Even though she’d shake them before bringing them inside, we’d still get the odd ant that just didn’t want to leave the sweet flowers!

    BTW, I got a little behind in reading my posts, too. I ended up missing a whole week, somehow and I’m just catching up now, so don’t feel too bad. 🙂

    • What a great memory of your Mom! I made a full discovery of peonies only a few years ago and now I can’t wait for May and June when they arrive at local stores. Watching them open from bud to bloom gives me great joy!!!
