Just wanted to share with you some of the beauty of my summer garden. I had the most spectacular blooming of Peonies in early May. Fuller and more abundant than I've ever had. April was a normal rainfall month to bring them on, but after the first week of May there was no rain the rest of the month and so this abundant showing was short lived. Of course, I watered, but any of you who garden know that watering is not the same as God's mineral filled showers. I decided I must do an altered book on my garden so I can preserve these lovelies in a place I can enjoy when I'm old and gone from here. Our lives are often short lived like the peonies so preserve your relationships with those around you. They may not be there long. Blessings on your day.

Beautiful flower! I'm glad you got pictures to remember it on those wintry days.

This is a beautiful Peony, especially this color. They are one of my favorite flowers. I have one in my back yard that is probably close to being as old as this neighborhood which was developed in the 1920's. It's a start a neighbor gave me a couple of years ago, a white with pale pink. I would love to some day find a Peony the color of yours, sssssooooo beautiful! :-)

Wow! Gorgeous flowers!!

I remember growing up around Seattle, Washington and we had the most beautiful flowers there, too. It's so hot here in Arizona, though, that spring flowers are usually gone by early May.

I love your garden :)

Beautiful! I have grown my very 1st roses this year so I can understand the need to photograph them ;0) Dxx

"Need to photograph?" It's not a need, it's an obsession because I am so enraptured by Divine Creation and all the beauty God has made. Who couldn't believe in a Creator when you see something like this.
