Fun day...........

It was fun to relax and  be with other creative people yesterday.  I picked 2 bouquets of peonies on Sat. night so they would be 'ant free' by yesterday so the flowers could be in the house.



I had one bouquet in the living room and one in the kitchen.  The house smelled like cookies and peonies!  I'm glad you all enjoyed the pictures of the cookies yesterday.

Even the white peonies are beautiful.  The are delicate and fluffy.

I'm curious where you put the peonies for a couple of days for the ants to clear.

my favorite flowers ever... When they sold my grandmothers house, I had ALL her peonies dug up out of her huge garden and had them sent to me, and now they are in MY garden.... Happy Happy memories...

I used to live where we had peonies but never realized if I cut them EARLY (a day or so before I wanted them inside), I could leave them sit and the ants would leave. So...I never got to have them inside...wish I knew about this then. Yours are beautiful.

I just love the peonies - I had only one bouquet of them before we had a storm that knocked them to shreds and that was a month ago.

Fresh cookies, fresh flowers, conversation with interesting people ... I'd say FUN might be an understatement!

Glad you enjoyed (and that you shared some with us).

What a treat to see the variety of peonies, and to have them bloom by Memorial Day. They truly are beautiful. I am sure your Cookies and Peonies stirred everyones creativity.

oh Wanda - peonies are at the top of my flower list - elbowing out the passion vine (until it makes an appearance!) Yours are lovely. I put in a new border two years ago and it's just beginning to look like mamie's house in the country! HEY! Go see my blog - you might find something there to make you smile!!!!

The peonies are gorgeous. I'm just a tiny bit jealous! And the cookies did look temptingly tasty yesterday. I tried not to look at them. :O)

The peonies are beautiful. We have a retired co-worker that brings hers to the library for us to enjoy. When I stop to smell them they remind me of my mother who has long since passed away.
Your photos are perfect! Thanks for brightening my day!
Happy quilting!

Mine have NEVER bloomed!! I'm so sad again this year they did not bloom and I soooo want to see them for they are from my grandmothers flower garden.
