Peony From My Neighbor

The elderly neighbors across the street are moving soon. Either into a nursing home or with family 

She has incredible gardens and just last year was working in the gardens. Then she took a turn for the worse after a surgery and pneumonia. Her husband is not well, has dementia that is progressing. Both in their 90s.

I  have many beautiful memories of sitting in her garden drinking tea. She always showed me something new in her garden. This lovely white peony was stunning. They will be missed.

  1. Sorry about them leaving. One of our neighbors went into the nursing home years ago. I do have a neighbor that calls and checks on us all every few weeks or a month. Great neighbors are a treasure indeed.

  2. That is a very beautiful flower and such wonderful memories. The apartment building my mom and I lived in NYC was almost all full of retired Latvians. These lovely people sure could party. Life was gay for a while and then it was sad to see them get ill and to die.
