My peonies are in bloom. I don't have nearly as many as Louise does, but I've been cutting a few every couple of days to keep my kitchen cheerful. Too bad their season is only about 2 weeks!
In other news, I painted the raw dormer window last night (top left of yesterday's post). I took my 6 foot stepladder to the attic to paint from inside, but I did have to sit on the sill and hang outside to paint. My dearly beloved had an absolute fit when he went out to stand in the driveway and found me hanging out the window. It's OK; I was done anyway, so I went inside. Then he reported me to the boys at dinner. Ryan then threw an absolute fit, and told me to let him hang out the window to paint next time, despite the fact that he's afraid of heights. His rational was that I'm not strong enough to hold myself inside with one hand while painting with the other. Of course, I had to point out to Ryan that there's no way he's fitting through a 22" wide window opening. We compromised, with me agreeing to let him tie me to the rafters inside should I find the need to climb out a window again.
Happy Garden Tuesday, everyone!
