About the Header Image: Peonies in Bloom in My Garden

Friday, May 22, 2015


Good morning,

Being at home with family is wonderful.

Catherine recently made Sunday Brunch for all of us living here as well as Aunt Carol and our friend Bill.
Just before we sat down, I grabbed my camera and took some quick shots of the layout.  Aunt Carol brought the bowl of fruit...
...and the french toast casserole.  I made fresh bread and daughter Catherine made everything else. 

It was wonderful to share such a delicious meal with family and friends.  And, there were enough left overs to enjoy the next day, too.  :)

Home sweet home!

Blondes Sun Bathing

Good morning,

I was going to title this "Naked Blondes Sun Bathing" but decided that would be too risque.

 This is the Blondes' Body Guard.

Here Come the Peonies!

Good morning,

Here come the Peonies!  That ant sure was fast.  I thought this was a sharper image when I quickly took it with my phone camera, but, hey, I got it before he moved around to the other side.  The next images are much better!
These very special peonies were here when we moved in back in 1979.  There were two clumps in the back yard so I separated a few and took them to the front garden.
I'm so glad I did that because the plants in the back have now gone.  I think they were under the path the pups have worn in front of the wall.  At any rate, these lovely plants live on year after year.  How pretty!

I just love seeing pictures other bloggers are posting of all of the flowers blooming in other areas, too!

Priority Activity

Good morning,

Guess what I did right away when I got home. Yes, I made bread.  There is nothing like the taste of home made bread and the aroma in the house is fabulous.

I have more than 60 blog posts about bread and recipes.  Click here if you would like to see them.

Iris Welcome

Good morning,

These lovely blossoms were waiting for us when we pulled into the drive after nearly eleven weeks away.

What a lovely welcome in our garden!

Welcome Home Committee

Good morning,

This is the view next to my chair about an hour after we got home from Florida.  These are only two of three of our pups.  They make sure to stay close so that we can't get away again.  ;)

It is good to be home!
