Peonies, the Garden, and the Loving Gaze

 It occurs to me that if you were to have just recently started reading this blog you might think it's a gardening or a flower blog, not a blog about the trials and tribulations of my beloved store Passionflower in downtown Eugene.  But flowers are a big part of the store and they always have been.  Al Klute, and Chris, and I are all long time gardeners. We have always supplemented commercially bought flowers with home grown ones at Passionflower

 Truth be told, Chris & Alison are way more devoted gardeners than I and they have the goods to show for it.  Like when Chris comes in with a bucket of full on peonies and tells me she has so many she doesn't know what to do with them all, I know she's in full on flower fantasy world at her place.

So even though I knew the answer, I asked her, "How's your garden looking these days?".  Mostly because I wanted to see what she would say.  And do you know what she said?  She said, "I can't stop looking at it.". 

And those, my friends, are words spoken like a true gardener.
Happy gardening to all during this lovely month of June.
And I promise you there really is a store somewhere here amongst all the flowers and store pics of our summer reset to follow very soon.
