My Favorites

Hello to All!  Happy May!  I'm finally back from my trip and have just enough time and energy to write a little post.  The trip to Sedona was really lovely, but more on that later.  While I was gone one of my peony bushes bloomed.  We only just planted three bushes last year, and didn't expect any blooms for years.  To my great surprise, we ended up with two blooms on one of them this year.  Of course they chose my weekend away to bloom, but they stuck around long enough for me to pick them and take some pictures.  I decided to put them in this mint julep style vase that's available in my Etsy shop.


Lovely, aren't they?  Here they are on my mantel.


I hope to have more blooms next year, and really probably should plant more bushes.  My wedding bouquet was made of the most gorgeous pink peonies, so they are particularly special to me.  I love that they bloom around the time of my anniversary.




Wishing you all a happy and productive week!
