I have peas!!!

My first peas ever! I watered the garden tonight and just happened to notice that my row of provence peas are growing! The other two kinds (Little Marvel and Snow Peas) are all in flower.
My first peony ever. I planted this the summer we bought the house or the next summer, so it has been six or seven years. (Taken off my mother's that has been there forever.) This is the first flower EVER in all that time! There was another bud that I preached to the kids to NOT do anything to harm the buds. Someone knocked it off while lawn mowing. Ahem.

My best friend and her family will be here from Alberta Thursday night!

Happy knitting!

How much is that Olympus camera you mentioned?

The Olympus shock and waterproof camera is $299. I think it's blue. (They come in different colors.) We have a Canon that is only $150, it's a nice little camera, red. We have a couple of other Olympus cameras, too, that are cheaper. One is $200, can't remember if we have the $180 one left. We've sold a lot of cameras lately. There's also a really awesome Olympus that is like $530. It's amazing. Only the $299 camera is shock and waterproof. They all have a year warranty, I believe, and if anything happens it comes to us, and we send it away. (Even after warranty, but it's usually much cheaper just to buy a new camera!)

thanks for the info! We're thinking of getting the shockproof one for DS to use, cause he's not going to be touching our new one when it comes. Ordered a Olympus ?? 510 from Toronto ... told hubby to check out prices at your place, don't know if he did or not.
Enjoy the day - it's a beautiful one!!

Your peony is gorgeous. Mine didn't bloom at all this year.
