Isn’t this a cool picture of wilted peonies’ petals? SO cool! Love that rich magenta coloring. This is from the peonies in my front yard. 🙂 So weird that it’s already Wednesday. (O_O) I’ll be honest. I haven’t actually read a lot of cool blog posts lately–not because there aren’t any out there, but because I’ve been really busy with other things. I’ve also been in a super intense period of writer’s block. ARG! I’ll get through it, though. Writer’s block seems to be cyclical for me, after all. Well, I’ll get to what you came for. Wednesday Wanderment! Go!
