Peonies Plus

Our peony plant had more blooms this year than ever before.

Thankfully the blooms don’t open all at once but when they do I grab the scissors and clip them and bring them inside to fill a couple vases. We now enjoy their beauty and their scent inside our living area.

Something lovely to look at while we are still in the midst of boxes and file drawers of paperwork. Looking, laughing, shredding, recycling and saving what needs to be saved or what we want to see again and smile. Some things have made me cry. Maybe I’ll share some of those things in the future.

We have the system down now and things are going faster.

One quote we came upon today that made us smile and wonder where we originally saw it, “You don’t have to be dead to move toward the Light!” I hope you have moved toward the light.

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Happy Weekend to you!

  1. Peonies…one of my all-time favorites. Such a shame they don’t hang on longer. They’re exquisite in every way! Blessings as you continue your purge. I know how difficult it can be.

  2. Your peonies are a welcome sight, really beautiful! We have been in the mode of getting rid of things for a few months now. We start, stop for a while and then start again. We keep things that make us smile too 🙂

  3. Beautiful shots of those peonies!!! Wish I could hire you to come over here and help me get started on cleaning up my files etc. … you must be feeling so liberated!

  4. Wonderful quote! Made me laugh. Okay, what is your system? Is it universal or particular to you? I have been on a massive paper purge and it is not going as smoothly as you seem to be suggesting yours is. All the best and enjoy those goegeous peonies.

  5. Lovin’ your blooms of June! So pretty. I don’t even want to think about all the paperwork we have stock-piled that will need to be disposed of one day. have fun. Keep smiling!

  6. Beautiful peonies … I remember peonies! (Another one of the many PNW flowers that we don’t see in Florida). I have slight hopes that these may still be blooming when we get home though. Meantime thanks for the beauty and the memories!
