Hopefully I will be planting some flowers in pots by the front door and in the shelter of the porch, 'coz guess what it is going to rain again tomorrow :(

Pretty Pink Peonies From My Garden :)

Hi All :)

I hope you are well and life is treating you kindly :)

Well, again the weather here in the Pacific Northwest has been frustratingly wet :(

It is always challenging for me as a Gardener seeing, earlier in the season, first my Daffs and then my Tulips bashed by the rain and then over the past few weeks seeing my Poppies and now my Peonies smushed. After all the hard work it is sometimes almost soul destroying. 

Usually I hope that there will be a dry spell and the flowers will get to bloom to their full glory in the garden but watching the weather forecast on the local news the other night it was predicting rain for days and my Peonies were just about to hit full bloom, so I got out my trusty pruners and decided I was going to enjoy these gorgeous flowers in the house!!! (Shaking my fist, with pruners attached, at the menacing clouds above, as I went on my way, LOL! :)  

So, of course I couldn't resist taking some photos of the Beautiful Pink Peonies to share with you all :) 

They smell amazing too :)

Enjoy!!! :)

This Weekend it is going to be 84 degrees and so I need to go shake off all the raindrops from the flowers so they don't scorch! Seriously, they are more demanding than little kiddies, LOL!!! :)

Have a lovely Evening :)

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.
