Lazy, Rainy, Flowery Sunday

Most of us are still snuggled in bed. It is very cloudy and overcast today with rain expected for the next few days. Motivation to run out to the garden and get a few of these beauties before they are pummeled by rain. That would be my luck. The hail storm we had a few weeks back destroyed many of the leaves and a handful of buds. I have showcased them in my enamel teapot and or coffeepot.
This picture is definitely more true to the colour. What a pretty blue. I wish I could find more enamel in this colour, it is so delightful.

Doesn't she seem terribly happy on the dresser?

The rest of the day will be with Romantic Homes. Me, tea and romantic charm. That's it.


Oh, and Mr. Youknowwho as well. He doesn't take well to rain at all. He is usually curled up into a ball with BOTH feet and part of his snout in my slippers. How cute is that?

Happy Sunday, Ladies.

You said that the wool and glasses case would say we would get on. Well I've just popped here for a visit and seen another reason we woudl get on. Your Pug. I didn't know you had one of these stubborn, funny adorable dogs too. He's very handsome your boy. Love teh way he's eyeballing the camera. Our Alfie Blue (who is black, not blue) would like a fawn girlie (who we'd call Elsie Pink).

Why is it that the peonies always end up pummelled either by rain or wind? Such a shame as they are with us for such a short time.

Very cute indeed! Wasn't the weather dreadful at the weekend...nothing nicer than a good magazine to read though. And the peonies are gorgeous.
