Precious, Pink Peonies....Perfect!!!





From time to time...

I get to thinking....

Perhaps my flower posts are getting to be a bit too much for people...

Perhaps I need to spice things up...

Write about something else...

But what???

Perhaps...

Something deep and thoughtful...

Perhaps...

Something about the state of the world... 

Perhaps...

Something earth shattering...

Perhaps...

Something thought provoking...

Or...

Perhaps...

Something beautiful and then something adorable...

After all...

I am pretty one-dimensional, you know...

So....

Guess what you are getting today???

MORE FLOWERS!!!

What else??

This is the second flush of peonies...

The deep pink...

And the pale pink...

Also a few more white ones appeared...

Too bad they are so shortlived...

How fabulous if they bloomed alllll summer!!














So...

That wasn't all I did yesterday...

We looked after sweet cheeks ...

And she had a 2 hour nap!!!

So happy about that...

First time...she has really settled into the playpen here...





She had her snack...and then got busy crawling around!!

She loves my frogs in the dining room!!!









Hi Granny!!!

Thanks for looking after me...

I had a good time...




Anytime Vivian...

Anytime...:o) 



















Hope you all had a great day...

Nice today, but the clouds have rolled in...more rain on the way!!

Did a wee bit of gardening...trimmed some stuff back...

Added a few annuals...nothing much...



On the menu tonight...

   Rotiserie Chicken...{Betsy's favorite!!!}

         Cavendish french fries....delicious....and corn on the cob...


Enjoy the rest of your evening...


                         Cheers!  :o)

  4. Just a though....what are you doing when Google reader is done in July? Are you switching to Bloglovin' or something else? I've been looking at Bloglovin' this evening but not getting many answers as to how it works on the blog or where it shows up with the reader. Have you looked into it? I'd love some input. Thanks. Pam

  11. I waaait for peonies to bloom every year! I actually know every house on my way to the market that has them, and I peek every time I go by this time of year! They are just plain beautiful, and they smell so fresh! :)

  12. Peony question. If you cut the stems of the blooms with tight buds not yet opened, will they open in the house? I have heard that you should only cut 2/3 of a peony plant in order that it gives better bloom. Ina Garten says to cut the plant as it grows, buds on stem etc., but I keep thinking if I just cut the big bloom, the remaining buds will burst out. Then the stems are so short you practically have to float them! Maybe that's more than one question. Any thoughts????
