Mother’s Day bouquet

The bouquet for church this week was full of ‘Miss Kim’ lilac and several kinds of peonies. It smelled SO good! I also tucked in a few sprigs of honesty. The green seedpods looked nice with the pinks and lilacs of the bouquet.

‘Miss Kim’ is a late blooming lilac (our latest) and it has petite blossom clusters. So pretty.

Our peonies are in full bloom and, along with the irises, are a beautiful sight. If you’re in the area, drive by. Better yet, stop in. 🙂

It amazes me how well they hold up under high wind and torrential rain such as we had Friday morning.

I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I certainly did!

    What beautiful photos. My peony just put out its first bloom yesterday. One of our HUGE oak trees died this year, so the tree removal guys were hanging in the trees buzzing away with their saws the day my garden club ladies were having lunch on my deck (Monday) We counted it as a learning experience. Allowing limbs to rot off may cause infection within the tree. Better to saw off the limb before it rots.
