My first peony rose and what a beauty!
and there are many more to come —
seems a long way from where I used to be —
but seeing that rose bloom today gave me just as much satisfaction as arriving in Sydney with the team for my first grand prix and is right up there with the day the queen stopped and chatted to me after I took this picture —
My mum would have loved it —
once she got over her surprise – because she never ever saw me as a gardener 🙂
