Ecru Couch Going and Coming

Another one for the collection. Garbage collection.

Laura was driving. I sat in the back seat on the left side on the way to the pool.

On the way home I sat in the passenger front seat. It was quick as she drove by.

I’d rolled the windows down.

I’d spotted the discarded couch earlier that afternoon but there was no place safe to take the shot. I knew we were going to drive that direction later d was hoping the garbage truck didn’t get there first.

Thanks Laura.

Going to the pool via Broadway
Oh my, there it was. On the way home.
I was so excited to capture it in the frame as we drove by. It would not have been convenient to ask her to drive around the block.
Too soon

Pittsburgh’s Peony Season has Played

Until next year.

Peonies are perennials so will return next Spring. The peony blossoms seemed extra lush this year. And there were some varieties in the Highland Park Gardens I’d not seen before.

Peonies“Peonies are usually sold as bare-root tubers with 3 to 5 eyes (buds), divisions of a 3- or 4-year-old plant” from the Farmers Almanac “Peonies are said to symbolize a happy life and a happy marriage”

Here is an article about the Biological Mutualism of Ants and Peonies. “It’s a myth that ants are necessary for peonies to bloom” (but they do love the nectar from Peonies)
