I am Cherokee too.
My mom's family have those same eyes. My sister & I always called them "Wolfy eyes". Mom calls them "slits".
Love your home, the flowers and wildflowers and rock walls. Such beautiful country. I think I need to move to your neck of the woods! Gorgeous!
I have lots of Native wildflowers "wild things" too, and grow many of the same flowers and trees. I particularly love the Nigela! Love blue flowers. I didn't realize they grew that tall. Beautiful. Do they grow from seed?
I've never seen a Red Peony before, either. I love how you have a whole bank of them and offset by that humongous pot of deep blue Petunias. Beautimous!
