A few images from the week.
As many of you know, Red River was my childhood beach.
Bank Street was the next beach up from us. Part of what we all called, “uptown”, and I can’t remember ever spending much time there as a kid.
The other night the sea breeze seemed to be blowing me in a different direction, and I found myself taking a walk along the homes that look out over Bank Street Beach. An area known way back when as The Campground.
What IS it about peonies?
Perhaps part of their appeal is the relationship between peonies — and their friends, the ants.
In the early Spring I have seen peony buds literally covered with ants as they scramble to feed on the sweet, gooey delights inside!
For a long time, an old myth led many of us to believe that the ants actually helped to open the peony buds.
And although it has since been proven that ants are not required for the opening of peonies, I still like to think that they might have a hand – or legs – in their magical unfolding! 😉
