Sweet Sixteen

This is a bloom from the final peony I bought on my grand adventure last summer – the Bartzella!  A delight for the eyes on the eve of my sixteenth wedding anniversary.

Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul to another.

Happy Anniversary – I love you, Buddy!

    Happy Anniversary! Pretty little rose. Our garden is all abloom as well. I found an iris the other day that I desperately want called ‘chasing rainbows’. It’s peaches and oranges on top with lavendar on the lower petals. Unfortunately, nobody in my garden is offending me enough to ‘kill’ so I can replace with this stunner.

    Life is good as we settle into summer style living. Potlucks, playdates etc. Spring cleaning (okay, that’s spring). bbq-ing. Hope you are happy.

    Blake took a tumble at the park last week and had to get 3 stiches. It was super easy and almost a blessing. A bonding moment for he and I as we found how good we work together. Our friends were all around to support our family. Bizarre to say that it was a great experience, but I could cry just thinking about how perfectly the whole thing went down.

    Anyway, I’m rambling.

    Have a lovely day!
