My little sanctuary all ready to go

I am utterly amazed at how wonderful this looks. I'll be honest... I have never been good at picking colours, but I LOVE the way the colours of the walls and floor look together. 

Here is a photo of this room before.

One of my garden favorites. Peony’s.

Last year I didn’t get a single peony flower. We were hit with a blight/fungus that really stopped the growth and flowering of almost all of my iris and peony plants. It was such a cold wet spring. This year is more than making up for it. Here are a few of my remaining peony’s today. 

Iris ‘Edith Wolford’
