Today we were invited to the farm home of an older lady we know from our church. She has lived on this farm most of her 80+ years, in the same house. She and her husband spent all but a few of their over 60 years together, in that house, on that farm, her grandparents' and parents' home.
She invited us many times before but today she gave up on our intending to visit and said, come visit this week, because my roses and peonies are in bloom, right now. After checking the weather we realized this was probably not only the best day, but maybe the only day we'd get the chance. So we drove over this afternoon.
Her peonies were planted by her grandmother. The roses, most of them were also planted by her grandmother. The entire yard smelled soooooo good! Therefore the only word for this day is Fragrant!
Photos of a few perfect blooms. If I could include the fragrance for you I certainly would do!
