in full bloom

my mother-in-law and i had a lovely little girl's lunch date on thursday... i met her in little compton at sakonnet vinyards, the local winery. their cafe had just opened for the season and we enjoyed a fantastic lunch bursting with the flavors of fresh, local foods, overlooking the grape vines.

the highlight of the day, though, was our visit to the little compton peony farm. i have been dreaming of this place for years now, but because the peony season is so short, they are only open for a few short weeks a year. i checked early this spring and we had it on the calender, so to be sure not to miss all the peonies in full glory... and they were magnificent!



the view is just spectacular.... rows of peonies with the marsh in the distance. classic little compton.
thank you, janet, for a wonderful afternoon!
