Peony Time!

I know this picture isn't great but the camera has been rather grumpy lately. I had to take this with my blackberry. The peonies are in bloom and they are quite lovely. We have had some wicked stormy weather here the last few days and I was worried they would be destroyed completely! I just love the scent of them.

I am patiently waiting for the curtains. They will be completed soon but I thought I would give you a little picture I took shortly after I painted the bedroom. Not sure if I like the shades I made for the dressing table lamps? What do you think? The originals are cream damask. Something to ponder.

I am still nursing the patient. Her six week post op appointment is Tuesday so we are hoping for some good news. The scars seem to be healing quite well and we have been applying Vitamin E cream which has seemed to speed up the healing process. But she still has some pain when she tries to do too much. My goodness this is a long recovery. Athletes do not sit still very well! And I am not getting half the things done I thought I would!

Here is the patient holding the incredible hailstones from Wednesday evening. We were lucky the cars didn't get dented, they were huge.

I wish I had more to report, but things have been slow around here.

Have a lovely weekend, Ladies!

It doesn't sound at all slow; quite the contrary...very busy. Your bedroom is so restful and it's going to be lovely.

Glad to know that your daughter is healing well and I hope that the report says that getting back to moving is good. Pool therapy. Request pool therapy for her. ;D

Love peonies and can't get enough. It's really too bad that they don't bloom all summer through. I have some to show today, too.

Those peonies are gorgeous. I wish I could grow them but I don't seem to get on very well with them. I love the lampshades too - your bedroom looks fab! I'm glad the patient is improving - hope the post-op appointment goes ok.
