Garden Walk

Hello Everyone,

The past couple of days have been HOT around here and I love it!! I am one of those people who is not built to live in the cold... but alas it is cold here for about a good 6 months of the year.  

This Memorial Day weekend, the "unofficial" start of the summer, was just the way I like it... HOT!  I took the time to walk around the house and snap some shots of my peonies in bloom.


This peony is slightly pink around the edges and then white and yellow.  


This is one of my favorites, hot pink with a dash of yellow.  


Here is another one with a little bug on the petal.


This is the Festivus Maximus Peony, one of my favorites.  I just love all the petals and the pink, white and yellow.  I think that peonies have to be one of my favorite flowers.

How about you, what is your favorite flower?


Being that it has been hot, the AC has been on in the house and the cats are enjoying a little snuggle on the window seat.

But, the BIG news is that we went out and the car thermometer read...


... 107 degrees Fahrenheit!! Can you believe it?  In actually the temp was about 96 degrees.  

Tomorrow, I am off for my retreat!! I am getting packed and ready to go, so stay tuned for lots of quilty pics coming your way!

Until Next Time...

Perfectly pretty peonies! Ours have bloomed and faded. With the early Spring that zipped right into Summer lots of things have already bloomed that don't normally until later. Our day lilies have already started to bloom. Looking forward to hearing about your retreat.

Beautiful pictures. Love your flowers and your kitties. Unfortunately, my day lilies are not blooming because stray dogs have decided to dig them out or lay on top of them. Have fun at your retreat.

You're a tropical person and your gorgeous flowers reflect that. I like it cooler myself. Gosh the cats have it made.

I am with you...give me the hot summer over the cold winter any time. Enjoyed the flower pictures and those cats are just too funny. Hope you have a great time on your retreat.

Love those peonies of yours...and your feline friends. Have a "cool" retreat!

We really should trade places of where we live. I like the cooler temps, and only live in the Phoenix area because we love being near our family. Although, my husband has been out hiking the trails with the temps over 100+ and says it feels therapudic. (I will be hibernating until October)

Your flowers are gorgeous and the cats look like they have the right idea, I could totally go for a nap right now! I'm pretty sure I wouldn't survive in super hot weather like that, we are military transplants to WA and I'm from CA, I can't even handle a Bay Area summer, let alone 100+ for any length of time!

Enjoy your retreat. That festivus peony is spectacular! Wow... What a beautiful bloom!
