[garden gifts]

last week after reading .NieNie. i was inspired by her home-grown peony post.
she spoke about how much they cheered her & the appreciation she had for her friend's special gift.

i had peonies in my garden & have always l.o.v.e.d. them, but never cut them.
these gorgeous blooms had been peacefully basking in the june sun;
to their dismay,
i decided to take advantage of their
sweet smell and luscious petals and pick them!

once i carefully arranged them, i enjoyed them until i passed them along.
i try to be a thoughtful person, but i often get absorbed in my own little life, and forget to
"look around" for ways to "pay if forward".

it really is amazing how the small things can make such a huge difference in someone's day.

may i forget myself more, and nurture the "flowers" around me!

.happy gardening.
