Sarah Bernhardt Peony~


I started with a Sarah Bernhardt and I have been bitten! I want more Peonies in my yard. I’ll be on the lookout when the time is right to plant some more.

On Sunday I bought a hummingbird feeder. My first of those, too. I want to set it somewhere out my computer window because a sweet hummingbird comes to visit everyday.

My neighbor found Mr. and Mrs. Ducks nest. It’s in one of their planters. There are 8 eggs in the nest. Mrs. Duck was sitting on the eggs when the neighbor showed me the spot. So soon we’ll see some little ducklings. I wonder how soon….

My week is thankfully starting slow but will move into hyper-mode soon.

Dear comes home tomorrow from a 6 day business trip to Chicago, yippee!

World Cup begins on Friday! No…really people, do you understand the magnitude of that for this soccer fan?!

Friday night my daughter’s boyfriend arrives for an 8 day visit before he heads off to bootcamp.

On Saturday after we watch the U.S.A./England World Cup game we head to Bowman Bay for a 3 hour kayak tour.

On Sunday my daughter will be walking in her graduation ceremony from the University of Washington!

Life is rich!

So for now I’m just letting this Sarah Bernhardt Peony intoxicate me with it’s fragrance.

Thanks for stopping by and blessings on your week.

  1. Have fun. Congrats to your daughter. What an achievement. I’ll be up there Friday. Can’t wait but it looks a little chilly. Was that named after the actress? Haveva great dayb 🙂

  2. What an apt verse, Ellen. Your agenda for the week sounds blissful indeed. Congratulations on your daughter’s graduation! I too look forward to the FIFA World Cup. I don’t see how North America (maybe not the US, but Canada for sure) can be so out of it while it’s the most popular sport in the world.

  3. Gorgeous peony pictures Ellen.. I love them too and just brought another huge armful in and I am envelped in peony scent.
    It sounds like you have a wonderful week ahead. Congratulations on your daughters grad.

  4. Oh peonies are lovely! I will have to add some of those to my garden! We got a new hummingbird feeder and apparently the birds hate it. They left when we took the old one down and haven’t been back since! So glad your dear one is coming home after such a long trip…I know you miss him.

  5. The peony is breath-taking! Beautiful…that’s a good one to start with! Oh, and happy reunion tonight too with your Dear! So glad Todd is home… Enjoy the sunshine today!

  6. I’m enjoying everyone’s peonies…and coaxing mine all the more. And thanks for the reminder…’all good things come from the Father’.

  7. I’m enjoying your Peony. My plant has bloomed and crinkled and I just cut off the dead flowers last weekend. Did you know you can cut them in the bud stage and keep them in water or wrap in newspaper for months in the fridge till you want to use the cut flowers. I didn’t know that but I heard it on Martha Stewart.
    Sounds like you are in for a fun next few days!

  8. Busy happy days! I want peonies too, but I think I will just enjoy my neighbors and my son’s as right now I am shade gardening and lusting after various hostas and columbines!

  9. Oh how I love peonies! I tried planting 3 in my yard and they all croaked. It was such a sad day in the life of my garden, but the woman at the seminar kept saying, “now you know these don’t normally grow in southern California.” yeah, yeah, yeah. I guess she was right…darn!
