More peonies

I couldn't resist having just one more bouquet of peonies!  Mine finished blooming weeks ago but a vendor at the farmer's market last Saturday was still selling them from her garden.  She said this would be the last week so I decided to indulge.

I chose this barely there colour - not quite white but not quite pink - and tucked them into my favourite vintage ironstone pitcher.

I rarely buy flowers in the summer months as I can usually find something from the garden to bring inside. 

My father is still staying with us after having a couple of falls while we have some modifications made to his home.  We expect to have the renovations finished around mid-August.  Things have been a bit busier than usual trying to organize everything he'll need in a short amount of time but it's all gradually coming together.

Have a lovely week!


  1. Hi Lynda! I've been thinking about you but lost track of you through the old yahoo groups and through Facebook. I decided to google you and found you. I spent a little time catching up with you through your blog, and want you to know I'm keeping you in my prayers. Sending lots of hugs, too, to an "old friend" :)

    1. Hi Joanne! I'm so glad you found me! :) Thanks for your prayers too. That's how I'm getting through this. I'm going to catch up with you soon! xoxo

  2. How beautiful...I wonder how she has peonies so long after the fact...did she refrigerate them as buds, a late-blooming variety... Your dad will be happy to return to his home once it is safe and ready for him. So many things to consider as I recall. A happy day to you!

    1. Hi Vee, I think they're late bloomers. She grows flowers on her farm and always has a nice variety. If only my gardens were that large! :)

  3. Those are gorgeous peonies. How lovely to have them so late in the season.

  4. How fortunate we are that you indulged, my friend!! :-)
    These are so beautiful, Lynda, and a color that I've never seen. Really so special.

    I am so glad to hear that your dad is doing okay, and that he will be able to return home after his home is made safer for him.

    i wish you a truly wonderful week! xo.
