I've had many surprises in my life.  So far most of them have been good.  Like my children.  None of them specifically planned by us, but God's plans have sure surprised and blessed us.

This summer comes another surprise.

Not nearly as great as another child, but a surprise nonetheless.  The peony bush out my kitchen window has NEVER, not EVER in the six years we've lived here, grown more than one flower.

Usually the little balls turn black and never become petals at all.  I decided it had a disease or when we transplanted it we buried it too low in the ground.

So imagine my surprise this year....

I don't know why, how, when.  Can't take any credit.

So I'll just enjoy the gift.
