Have You Praised Your Peonies Today?
It took 8 years, but they’re finally in great form.
We’ve come a long long way together,
Through the hard times and the good.
I have to celebrate you baby.
I have to praise you like I should.
What pains me though, is that this is all happening at the front of the beds. Why did I plant them there?!
I never envisioned them this tall and am wondering if they should be moved. Could there be more hard times ahead for the peonies?
Did you recognize those lyrics from Fatboy Slim? One of my favorite music videos ever! (by Spike Jonze)
The video won three major awards at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards: Breakthrough Video, Best Direction, and Best Choreography. I just like it because they’re not all superskinny kids in shiny spandex and they look…well…almost as geeky as I do when I dance. And some of them have (gasp!) gray hair! Torrance Community Dancers, where are you now?!
