~Peonies~

My peony bushes loved the warm weather we had this Spring and produced many blooms for me this year.  They are one of my favorites and since the blooms got so big this year, they were practically lying on the ground, so I cut a bunch a few days ago to enjoy inside. 

I also recently received the latest Jeanne d' arc which has peonies on the cover.  This chair is the a great spot to sit down, relax and read through my favorite magazine.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I think they are so beautiful with their delicate petals in all shades of pink.  

I placed both some pink and  white peonies in my large vintage trophy and am now greeted with, not only their beauty as I walk into my living room, but also their lovely fragrance. 

I want to thank everyone who commented on my booth at the Farm Chicks Show and now that it is over and my kids are out of school I'm hoping to have a little more time to share some things with you here on my blog.  I'm looking forward to getting out in my garden,  finishing off my potting shed, spending some time with my family and soaking up the sun this Summer!
