Happenings at Home

Guess what?! This week our peonies started blooming. Not just a few…but literally overnight so many I can’t even count. I shared some videos over on Instagram if you want to take a peek but here are a few pictures too.

Peonies in our backyard

They are all white and they are in the flower beds on both sides of the pergolas. Gosh they are so absolutely beautiful, and they smell heavenly too. My mom’s bloomed last week so I was a bit worried that mine might not bloom. Luckily there was nothing to worry about!

I still need to do a bit of research to find out their variety they are though. If you have any ideas let me know!

We had a birthday dinner for my dad at our outdoor table and we could smell the peonies the whole time. It was magical and the perfect setting to celebrate my dad. He is one amazing guy!

This Week on The Blog

This week on the blog I was a busy lady! My new goal for the blog is to publish 3 posts a week. This is lofty but I think I can do it most weeks. And this week I was able to do it and it felt doable.

Wine bottle glasses in green are perfect for outdoor tables.

I also decided to send out an email each time I do a new blog post instead of only on Sundays. I’m doing this for a few reasons. To spread out when people are reading my blog and to not make my Sunday newsletters to overwhelming. Hopefully you don’t mind a few more emails each week! I promise not to spam you!

    A tip on extending your peonies season, when they have barely opened bud stag, cut wrap in newspaper and refrigerate up to two weeks. Then taken them out and in a few days they will start to bloom out. The peonies season is way to short for my love of these beautiful flowers. I think blooming depends on the amount of sun they get!!!
