Say A Little Prayer For Me

Soooo tired. Two weddings , one today ,one tomorrow. And a slew of other orders. I left work at 6:15 and our driver was still out delivering.

I'm drinking a vitamin bomb because I feel a sore throat coming on and enjoying a private computer moment. I want to go wander around the garden but the 6 month old pit bull , Baby, has escaped his home again and of course come directly to our yard. As far as I can tell he's being reared by 7 children of a young age, whose names all start with R. If German girl were home we would corral baby up and walk him home ( well, she would) , but I'm not up for bringing up baby tonight.

Today's wedding was beautiful, all white peonies, scabiosa flower, lambs ears and other lovelies
held in a beautiful botanical garden. Clear skies, 80 degrees, perfect.

Tomorrow's wedding is for one of my best friend's daughter. So far the pink peonies, from France no less, have opened and started to crumple and the cherry blossoms are on the verge of exploding. As am I. But manana es otro dia. I have fresh peonies coming , praying for the cherry to hold firm, and reminding myself that everything always works out.

( it does doesn't it?)


  1. Yes it does and will work out. Will say a prayer for you my friend. Whew some weeks are crazy, please take care of yourself and here's to frsh peonies and firm cherry blossoms!!
    All my best,

  2. oh lord, I remember those days. I use to do wedding florals for a living - for about 6 years. It was far to stressful for me. I'm wishing you the very best of luck!!!!

  3. 7 children with names all starting with R.. HA! Must be some monogramming experiment.
    My fingers are crossed for you, but I'm sure it'll all work out well.
    Sending you cosmic hugs from France OOOO

  4. I'll be praying--That white bouquet is breathtaking! What a lucky bride. All will be well!

  5. It will work out and be wonderful - sending positive vibes to you and the white bouquet/posey is just lovely - so pretty and I love the jasmine intertwined ....x

  6. Dear Jane,

    I hope you had a lovely wedding today and are feeling better!!! That bouquet you made is beautiful. Wish you lived over here, so that I could come to you for my flowers!!!

    Happy sunday & take care!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  7. Oh ladies, Thank you for all your prayers, positive vibes and good thoughts! They all worked, and while the wedding didn't go off without a hitch or two, only us and our driver knew for sure. i think everything was beautiful.
    hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Saturday and looking forward to Sunday in the garden. xoxo, Jane ( how did i do it before all of you?)

  8. Hello - me again - just to say hope the wedding went well and also to say that I have 'tagged' you in my post of today... - feel free to join in if you feel moved but no pressure! x

  9. Good luck to you! Those bouquets look beautiful. I used to shoot weddings and boy do I remember those crazy frantic days!! A couple of my best pals were florists - Ms Missing Goat is one of those pals.
    Have a lovely day!

  10. BIG HUGS coming your way... and yes, it always works out... just not always how to expect it to... as my brother says "its not arms and legs"
    i hope it is perfect in every way... xoxo

  11. Peonies are my absolute most favourite of all time flowers!

    Sending lots of positive vibes your way.
    one love.
