May Desktop and Mobile Backgrounds

Hello May! Time for another set Leelou Desktop and Mobile Backgrounds! I'm celebrating my most favorite month of the year by actually posting the desktop and mobile backgrounds on time!

 

May is the month of Peonies for me. Just making this background and thinking about them made me home sick. They remind me of my Mom. As long as I can remember, she has always had them in her garden. My sisters and I used to wait until they'd bloom really big and then scatter their pedals all over the a yard. In the part of Utah where I'm from, the peonies bloom at the end of May. I have fond memories of cutting peonies and irises with my Mom as we got ready to go decorate graves on Memorial Day. Her Mom also has her own Peonies supply on the side of her house.

My Paternal Grandpa, who was the epitome of green thumbed-ness, had peonies growing along his fence in front of his yard. We lived with him for a year and half (many many moons ago) and I wanted so badly for even an inkling of his plant growing abilities to rub off on me. It didn't and I'm pretty sure he was as disappointed in my inability to grow things as I was.

Just typing this is making me miss those people so much. As far as I know, there aren't any peonies growing here in Okinawa.  I haven't looked all that hard. And maybe I'll find some or get some to grow for me next year.  But for now, the next best thing I can do is make some digital art with these gorgeous watercolor peonies. Not even close to the real wonderfully fuchsia flowers, but it shall suffice for now.

Now onto what you're here for!

I've got the desktop backgrounds available in the Custom, Calendar, and Basic Backgrounds.

The mobile backgrounds is available in both the basic version and calendar options.
