I love the way the petals of peonies unfold like tissue paper.

Wow, you captured the softness of peonies. I love how delicate and big they are. Thanks!

I love peonies too. We always seem to have a heavy rainstorm as soon as mine are out in full bloom. This year I picked a big bouquet before that could happen. Lovely illustration.

My words here are to unfold the secret of each blossoms in dedication to my lover...He..He..
Just so beautiful, charming and dreamy.
Thanks Nicky!
And I love the minimal colour used here, very romantic and engaging!!!

Sorry to inform you that our Beloved friend Bella Sinclair's husband passed away before the father's day.
Please visit her site when you are free, thank you.

Dearest Nicky,

Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and kind, loving words. The story about the two jagged stones did, indeed, bring me comfort. Already, with the love and courage bestowed upon me from good friends such as you, I feel the edges smoothing over. Thank you. Your card, as well, is stunningly beautiful. It is one of my favorites pieces by you.

With love,

ps. I love the way peonies unfold, too. My favorite flower.
