nature in the home

I picked a big blousey peony from the garden this morning, they've been flowering a few days already and no sooner had I popped it in the vase than it started to shed it's petals. I'm not too familiar with peonies - these plants have been in our garden since we moved here, yet this is the first time they've really bloomed, in previous years the buds seem to have just rotted away, rather than burst open. Aren't they amazing though? Like big tissue paper flowers, and interesting how the petals are so random in shape. The ants seem to like them too, do you see him in image two?

I'm joining in with Lou and her nature in the home series, this week the challenge was white. And thanks Lou for choosing my image of feathers from last week to illustrate this week's post.

Remember there are only a couple of days left in the life of Google Reader, if you'd like to keep following nice kind of blue I recommend using Bloglovin'. The interface looks pretty, plus you can group blogs into categories if you choose. You can follow me there by clicking the button below or in the sidebar to the right. Of course there are other readers out there too, if you don't fancy using Bloglovin'.
