spindles and peonies

spindles and peonies

the second spindle was finished today. even though it’s a bit smaller then the other, the rose wood i used is so dense this spindle seems heavier. there goes my lace spindle. i will try again.

this evening the mr discovered a ton of peonies in bloom. the ones above (yeah my camera hates low light) are from a japanese peony tree my mother gave us last year. they were given after the flowers bloomed so i wasn’t sure what to expect this spring. i was pleasantly surprised to see so many pop up so soon. so far we have five ready to bloom and a few more on the way. my peony bush also has an insane amount of flowers. we counted at least twelve buds. i’ll try to get some better pictures soon, instead of sneaking up on them at night.
