Celebrating Pink and Peonies ~


I woke up today to a sink full of beautiful peonies!!

 Hubby kept trying to lure me out of bed this morning by
saying that I better pick my peonies before it rained and I just kept laying in bed. When I finally
decided to get up and plodded to the kitchen my eyes lit up when I saw these beauties!!  He had
gone to our local town {3 miles away} and picked these on the way home. {they were in a ditch of all
places!} How does that happen! Not by a house, but just growing in the ditch. We saw them last
 night, but didn't stop. I whined around a bit when we got home for him to go and pick me some,
 but I told him he didn't have to. I was tired and so was he!  HA!

I had forgotten all about them!! SO... I was thrilled when I saw
 these this morning. {along with a maple frosted cinnamon roll with nuts on top}

{He picked the ones in the large white vase and the others are from our bushes here}


Who wouldn't be thrilled to wake up to these beauties??!!




This is a table on my front porch. Sorry for the "slant" of the pic!

I have fun moving things around all summer long out here.  I need to put something
in that birdcage yet, but not sure what. Maybe some ivy...I do have some that I
haven't planted yet.

I just noticed I haven't gotten rid of the pinecones from over the winter!
Guess I better get right on that. :)




I took photos of peonies inside and outside and every which way while they still look nice.


I love them on my pallet tray, don't you?



In my humble opinion I think everyone should have peonies growing in their garden.
They don't last long, but they are so worth the show they put on for a brief time.
I love them!

Happy JUNE everyone!

One of my favorite flowers! So pretty! I have 4 peony bushes. 2 newer ones that didn't have many blooms last year. Very pretty photos of them.

I think you must be married to a very special guy Sandi!!!! That is so sweet that he would go back and bring those beauties home to you.
Your porch is lovely!

I so agree about everyone should plant a peony bush :)))))

Oh, Sandi, what a complete sweetheart he is!!! And the peonies are gorgeous! I'll have to start taking a closer look at ditches. :)
Have a beautiful one,

What a gorgeous way to start the day! Peonies don't grow here at all so I am thrilled to find them in the grocery. A lot less romantic than yours! Haha! Your photos are so lovely. Love your porch vignettes!

SO beautiful and SO sweet of him to do that! I have two bushes that are the white ones -- I really would like to get these pinks though. Beautiful pics!

What a sweet hubby! And what a glorious way to wake up, including the cinnamon roll. :)
Yes, peonies are a must. I think mine still need time to mature - I've only got 6 blossoms between 3 bushes! Sigh...

Lucky YOU!!! I miss my Ohio peony busy soooooooooo much. Those are such magical flowers, I think! Enjoy yours.
