Roses, Peonies and Thrifty Finds

Hello my friends. Today I have gone through my pictures on the computer that I saved for you. These were my lovely peonies. They are quite finished now as the wind has been atrocious and many downpours had left them sodden. Thank goodness I cut them in plenty of time.

And that sweet bookmark? My dear mother made it for me for Christmas and it is one of the most treasured gifts I have ever received from her.

Just a snap of a dahlia and the pretty Mother's Day card I received.

The forget-me-nots were quite abundant this year. I had them spread all over the house. Every available vessel had wee blue flowers peeking out.

Such a pretty little flower, so humble.

Alfred de Dalmas. Has not made an appearance in my garden for many, many years. Two years ago I moved it to a new location and lo and behold, gorgeous blooms.

My dear, sweet William Baffin. Never, ever disappoints me.

Oh, you beautiful boy!

While we are talking about flowers, look at this sweetie I picked up. Charming tin with the most vivid colours. Really makes me want to pop something in the oven to fill it with!

And have been very lucky with the pink and green. A yummy pink stripe pillowcase and a little rosebud one as well. A wonderful sheet, all rosy and some stunning Laura Ashley fabric with tiny flowers although I am not sure what pattern this is. Anyone? Adorable all the same though.

The latest addition to the family.

The girls suprised me with this for Mother's Day. Almost as cute as my real handsome man.

Lovely June

Right on time again! The June picture from the BBC Homes and Antiques Magazine. The only thing I am not quite sure about is the silver spotlight lamp. But everything else, beautiful.

Did you see the May issue of Country Living? A wonderful spread on Rachel Ashwell designs. Stunning wallpaper.

And this egg blue chest with the flowers! Where does she find this stuff? I want to visit the sales she visits.

Oh, to dream.

And the most charming garden.

How many years must it take to establish this glorious wisteria?
Prom was simply wonderful. My daughter's dress was the perfect one for her and she had a fabulous time. The only thing is, it is one more step towards...................leaving.
