Peonies and Zoots Coffee

My coffee/latte habit is a delicious event every day.

Usually I drop in to my favorite local coffee shop (Zoots) some time in the afternoon–though I have discovered a way to make “almost espresso” here at home and more about that later.  (Nothing really replaces the espresso that comes from an industrial machine.)

Peonies LOVE Maine.  They adore the cool spring.

Here’s an example of how lovely they are–from a vase on the Zoots counter while waiting for my vanilla latte of the day.

Look at the pale pink blush that suffuses this petals…

And here’s a close-up of the fabulous center:  Nature in all its glory in one small place.

Beauty and the treat of an afternoon latte means life is so good.
