Ramo de Flores

"Bouquet of flowers"....are there any so lovely as garden peonies?   A bouquet of spring sunshine, dewy and fresh scented...an ant crawling within the petals.  How I anticipate the first blooms of the season.  How I love their fragrance.  How I ache for them!   Last spring I brought a bunch home from the farmers market and spent the afternoon with paint and canvas  as the flowers wilted before my very eyes.  After a few hours, my work looked ....hmmm...festively Spanish??....somewhat like the bright tissue paper flowers of a Mexican holiday??   Hola ramo de flores!!
