Big Peonies and Tiny Radishes

I have two white peony bushes in the front yard. They were full of gorgeous, large, white blooms a few days ago...and then the rain came. Always seems to be the case.

They almost appear to be blushing with their tiny specks of magenta.

I have a magenta-colored peony in the flower garden in the back. My one neighbor admires it each year. It really is a beautiful color.

I was weeding the Kitchen Garden today (which really needed it), and I guess I got a little over-zealous. I saw the pink tops of some radishes sticking out of the ground, and couldn’t resist.

You can’t really tell from this picture, but the radishes were really only about as big as my index fingernail (and my fingers are really small). Despite being diminutive in size, they were robust in flavor. Next to harvest will be the arugula.
