Risk & Peonies

And then the day came,

when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom.
Anais Nin

Today, the Peonies bloomed,
and they nearly took my breath away.
I had to share them.

A lovely Monday to you.

xx, Cassie

Mine are in bloom also. I love to pick them and put them in a vase on the deck. They are so pretty, but don't last long. All the flowers are coming and going so quickly.
Everything is in a rush! I love this time of year.
Having lunch with your mom soon!

Hey Cassie! You are always so inspirational! I'll have to write that one down in my journal...and then raid my mom's peonies!!!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
