Happy Memorial Day, to all my readers!!
My peonies are blooming – above are a few pictures I took yesterday of the ones in my backyard.
I so enjoyed reading your comments and learning what flowers YOU love. Peonies were high on the list, but hydrangeas ran a close second. Lily of the Valley, roses, daisies, poppies, calla lillies, lilac and orchids. Let’s just say…we love them all!
And, now to a winner.
I truly wish I could send you all one of these fabulous Nest candles, but this one will be going across the pond to Christel of Captivated by Image. Christel, lives in Holland, is a fantastic photographer and does the most amazing mood boards on her blog. I encourage all of you to hop over for a visit. Coincidentally, her favorite flower is the peony. Congratulations, Christel!
Wishing you bouquets of good times today with those you love!

Oh my, I'm swooning.
You have the most exquisite garden and those peonies of yours… amazing!
So jealous. I have to get mine at Trader Joe's and they haven't had any this year because of quality control issues. I want to reach right through the screen and pick some of yours. I'd be a very bad neighbor 🙂
Lots of Love to you Elizabeth!!!

Oooh Elizabeth, I'm so thrilled I won your give-away! Thank you so, so much for your incredibly sweet words. And of course in advance for sending me that delicious candle. I can't wait.
Your peonies look utterly gorgeous, I know how it feels to enjoy their beauty so deeply, especially when they're fresh cut!

Your peonies are absolutely gorgeous…one of my favorite flowers. Mine have already bloomed and unfortunately have no more buds…sad. I am thrilled to finally be able to comment on your beautiful blog again – computer issues…ugh!! Hope your holiday weekend was a great one ~
Congrats to Christel. I am flush with peonies as well right now. I have beautiful arrangements all around the house that are lending the most fragrant aroma. I wait all year for these weeks that will pass all too quickly! Hoping you had a wonderful holiday weekend!
