Peonies Revisited

Monday, May 31, 2010

Hello lovelies!  Did you have a good weekend? 

We spent the weekend in the mountains and had a great time.  We enjoyed hiking, relaxing, and the guys even had luck at fishing, so we were able to enjoy fresh trout, a real treat.  The next best thing to spending time with family, was getting to see the peonies again.  Our peonies have sadly come and gone here at home, but in the mountains they were just beginning to put on a show.


We arrived shortly after a spring shower and the peonies looked like this.


I love to see them all balled up like fists. 


By the end of the weekend, this is what they looked like.


I brought back the grass cloth wallpaper that I told you about and plan to begin working on lining the built-ins in the bedroom sometime this week.  So many projects, so little time.
