Wordless Wednesday: Peonies & A Cat In A Box

Do you say “pee-uh-nees” or “pee-OH-nees”? I think this is a regional thing. I say the first one. Here in MN they say the 2nd one. This is the first year they’ve bloomed!IMG_7129Simba loves his box. We closed the lid for about 15 seconds and it was pretty amusing.  IMG_6972IMG_6969 Make sure you check out these other Wordless Wednesday participants: 7 on a Shoestring, 3 Princes And A Princess 2, and My Wee View.

So funny. We had this discussion at book club last week. I say the second one and I was very out-numbered! lol. Too funny about the cat. My daughter got a kick out of that. Happy WW!

Love the peonies but I am laughing at the cat. Reminds me of mine right now. Especially since we're moving and boxes are everywhere.

Not all Minnesotans say pee-OH-nees. My HB does. I say pee-uh-nees.

Did you know that the old peonies are unavailable? They've been hybrid to eliminate the fragrance and thus the ants. We've been trying to find a certain one and can't as it's too old.

This is my all-time favorite flower. I pronounce it both ways...whatever comes out of my mouth that day...LOL!

Stefany T said...

I say the first way... pee-uh-nees. I have never heard it the other way. lol

That is so cute about your cat. Mine is obsessed with anything she can put herself into. She likes to be in a laundry basket. LOL

Jennifer Leigh said...

Definitely pee-uh-nees and they are one of my favorite flowers!

Those are beautiful! I can't really tell flowers differently though. And I think I say it the 2nd way...not sure. Just a short 'o'

Xmas Dolly said...

Thanks for stopping by, and if you want to know the story about the black-eye I posted it a few minutes ago. Everyone was curious so don't feel alone. LOL Love the Cat in the box. Cats are such curious playful creatures aren't they? Have a good one!

Jennifer said...

Oh, oh, oh! I loooove peonies (pee-uh-nees)! If it weren't for the Las Vegas heat (and my Black Thumb), I'd so love to try and grow some! *sigh*

Visiting from 5 Minutes For Mom! :-) Happy Hump Day!

I say, "pee-OH-nees." Not sure if I'm right, but that's what I say.

I have a tree peony & a reg. one. hubby moved the reg one & it doesn't do as well as the big tree peony, even tho they are in the same area. mine are a deep fuchsia. I like your pink. Cats love boxes, bags or anyplace they can squeeze their bodies into & hide or get ready to attack you! LOL

DaenelT said...

I say "pee-uh-knees" but I've never smelled them before.

And cats scare the living daylights out of me.

Staci said...
