Peonies For Your Weekend

Traveling Mama Peonies-2

It is the eve of the weekend and that is pretty exciting stuff!  Your thoughts, notes, comments, support, and kindness have meant the absolute world to us this week after this post.  It’s been a hard week for us, but it’s ending on a positive note.  Our nephew took a scary turn for the worse on Monday and we spent some time debating whether to it was time to purchase tickets and be with our family, but thankfully he is doing much better (though thoughts and prayers for continued healing would be very appreciated!) He is home again and that, is something worth celebrating!

We thought since it’s a long weekend here and in the US, that some peonies, and a punch of Spring were in order.  My mom has been sending me photos of hers that she has picked from her own garden, but sadly I cannot take credit for these beauties.  I did ride my bike to my favorite florist and walk around like a giddy school girl from all the choices!  That counts for something, right?  (I shot these on white, but I may have to have more to shoot against black again…)

These pink peonies are so fragrant that they fill the room with their delight.  What a wonderful way to cheer the spirit!

we must be on the same wavelength since I literally was marching around the house with our most recent bouquet of peonies and taking pictures of them 😉
I’m so sorry to hear about your nephew – it’s so hard to be away from home when these things happen – but all fingers crossed and prayers ordered for him to get well soon and stay home! 😉 thinking of you guys .

So glad that you nephew is improving. There is no easy answer to know what or where we should be. I am struggling with the decision to retire or not. It is more complicated than I expected.
Your peonies are gorgeous. I am waiting for mine to bloom.

May you find your path.

beautiful photos and flowers
I have the same color in my garden ~ waiting for them to open a little more to cut and bring inside
there’s nothing like the sweet fragrance of peonies!

I love peonies. Tissue soft petals and so fragrant. I have a vase full on my table, picked for me by a friend from her garden. Lucky me!
