a peony for your thoughts

Predictable…

No visit to the Big City to the South would be complete without a visit to the Large Market.  I don’t really expect to find anything new or exciting, but Sigyn likes to talk to the fruit and flowers and sing little songs to the lobsters in the tank, both of which I find completely adorable, so it makes my day.

Sigyn says the label means these fruits speak French.

“Bonjour Monsieur Banane! Vous avez l’air très ensoleillé aujourd’hui. C’est un jaune très flatteur.”

“Don’t worry, apples.”

“The new crop will be coming in soon, but I’m sure someone will buy you before then.”

The store is decorated with semi-locally grown flowers today.

Sigyn wants a boost so she can reach up and make the snapdragons actually snap.

They’re really pushing this sausage.    I wonder how hot it is?

And if the humans would notice if I slipped it into their recipes?

Sigyn thinks this wine’s  goat label is cute.

Nice horns, I must admit.

More goaty stuff:

Fig and black pepper goat cheese?  That sounds just like the frou-frou sort of thing the humans would eat.  I bet they actually buy some.

“Miss Peony, you’re sure looking cute!

“Your ruffly dress is a beaut!

“I certainly think

It’s a nice shade of pink!

And real comfy to sit in, to boot!”

Mischief in Houston, Part VI: The Fairest Blossom

Two final pitfalls lie between us and the checkout–candy and flowers. I have managed to shepherd Sigyn past the marzipan and Toblerone, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to keep her out of the posies.

Quite literally. Behold my Queen, enthroned among the peonies.

I have to hand it to her, though…

My sweetie sure knows how to choose blossoms to complement her coloring.
