Rocks, Peonies and Rosemary


Each rock, in this photo, was hand picked, over the years, for one peculiar reason, or another more aesthetic reason, and carried home, some traveling further than others to reach this destination.  A few required some effort; including a ride in a kayak, another a rather lengthy hike through the woods, one a strapping to my truck’s bumper, and others rather more mundane modes of transport.

The peony, in this photo, came from ol’ Dave’s house, a WWII Navy man, who served on a submarine tender, and with whom I had many a conversation, and not a few drinks over the years.  He passed away last year after battling cancer, and he wanted his peonies to have a good home.

The rosemary, in this photo, was raised by the Lovely Melis from a single shoot.  It has participated in many a good meal, shared its scent with abandon, and should continue to do so for many a year to come.
