Peonies and Purple Blooms

Time for ABC Wednesday and the letter P! Thank you Mrs. Nesbitt, Roger and the whole ABC Team!

I love all the shades of purple that are growing in my yard right now. My lilac blooms are almost full.

Pansies and the ground cover have purple blooms.

I have the promise of more peonies this year than last.

More perennials that are purple.

And here’s my Bible Verse Card for the Letter P!

And on the subject of peace here are some words from the Prince of Peace, Jesus;

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” John 14:27

I’m continuing to enjoy a peaceful week at this old house. We had some very warm weather here on Monday. It reached 76 degrees in our town. Tuesday is another story. Hopefully I’ll be able to mow the lawn before the rain comes in.

Do you have promises of more blooms in your yard?

  2. everything is looking so pretty. i LOVE the idea of using those concrete blocks for planting in…i just may do the same…great idea and easy….

  3. Such pretty purple colours Ellen, the fruits of your labours can now be displayed.

  4. You have a gorgeous garden. My wife is the family gardner, and has managed some gorgeous blooms in our semiarid part of the world too. May the peace of the Lord be with you on this ABC Wednesday! #27

  5. So much pretty purple in your yard!! Our lilacs are blooming now too…I need to clip a few to enjoy inside.

    Your purple peonies bursting with promise have gotten my attention! Please give us another glimpse when they have bloomed?

    • Although my peony buds look nice and purple now they will burst out with shades of pink…I will share them when they are full…

  6. Beautiful purple and blue blooms in your garden. It’s such a wonderful time of year. Our peonies are at about the same stage as yours – lots of tight little buds that promise ruffled blossoms before long.

  7. Your choice of Bible verse is so perfect for my thoughts and ponderings lately… peace, we all need peace. But only the peace the Prince of Peace brings , amen .
    The flowers are so pretty and I like the way you’ve planted them.

  8. Hi Ellen, thank you for your lovely post and the quotes from Ephesians 6. Something we all need in this time of wars and disasters.
    Have a great week.
    Wil, ABCW Team

  9. Enjoyed all of your purple blooms, Ellen, Thank you for sharing the scriptures, What would life be without the peace that only God can give!
    I am so looking forward to more blooms in my garden.
    Blessings,
    Sue
