Shop And Garden
What a busy week the garden has had. Accompanied by the cat and 4 and 20 blackbirds I just took a morning stroll. Between the 90 degree days and the rain the garden has grown and grown, mixing April with May. The lily of the valley are up and coming (whatever happened to valley for May Day). the peonies are up to my knees and loaded with buds, our Miss Kim lilac is HUGE and revving up to open. And the weeds? I foresee a busy day ahead of me.
Before I get down and dirty, here are a few pics from yesterday's wedding. The bridal bouquet was much more traditional than we usually do. White peonies, stephanotis, hypericum berries, green hydrangea and freesia. The bridesmaids carried sweet nosegays of peonies, hypericum, hydrangea and cherry blossoms. And here's a shot of the van loaded with centerpieces and off to the party.
Now I'm off to party in the garden. Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.
