When the temperatures rise and the ground is scorching, you can find me…inside. Unless of course, there are peonies to be found…it is one of the few pleasures I enjoy during the summer. Peonies, strawberries, the smell of fresh cut grass, ice cream, le tour de france, and…air conditioning. 



  1. Such a gorgeous shot! I’m not going to lie, I am looking forward to some fruit salad and
    AC in Philly at the end of the month! Paris is simply unbearable in the heat!

  2. I love your picture. I almost missed my Peonies blooming as I was in SC with my mother. I did get home in time to see the end of the bloom.
    I am also an AC girl in the summer. I feel so lucky to have it. I just wish that this heat hadn’t started so early. I love Spring.
    At least this heat isn’t like SC heat. It was miserable while I was there and too buggy.
    I think I will go put my ice cream maker in the freezer.

  3. Amen. Unless I am on the beach I don’t do heat. Warm and sunny? Loves it. Scorching and sweaty? No way.
    My husband actually jokes (although it is totally accurate so I suppose not a joke) that he loves when “winter wife” reappears in the fall. Summer wife is either in airconditioning or she is super crabby.

  4. Em, ha-my husband says the same! I turn into such a grump in terrible heat. I’m glad I’m not alone! :)

    thanks Julie…I love spring too…I wish I had an ice cream maker, yum!

  5. I was so thrilled when I found some wild peonies in the middle of a vineyard (not sure if you saw that post) a few weeks ago! Beautiful flowers!

    Send over some of that weather here, please! It was here, but sadly, has left completely.
