Peony petals

Peony Scented WaterI love my peonies, both their scent and visual beauty. I decided to save their scent for future days to enjoy!

Finding Source of Bad Smell?We painted our front room about 5 months ago, it has a concrete floor and brick walls. Ever since we have had a smell of cat pee. It is not constant, it comes and goes. It might be nothing to do with us painting, that may just be a coincidence. I have had my gas checked to make sure it wasn't that.
