    What a lovely place you have. The peony is beautiful...don't think I could get one to survive on our patch of droughty, gravelly hill country. It's raining though, for which I am exeedingly grateful.

    Peonies!!!! I love those! They don't grow or do anything here in La. It's too hot. Yours is absolutely stunning. If I ever get the chance to design fabric, I think I'll have to include some peonies and maybe a few other flowers that we don't get to enjoy in the swamp.

    I despise yard work. The result is that my yard is blech and blah and mostly weeds. I pay a guy to mow it every two weeks just avoid being THAT yard one reports to the city. I wish I had a green thumb, just don't. But I admire the fruits (and vegetables and flowers) of your labor. Kudos!

    What a beautiful yard. So peaceful looking and would be a joy to be in. Great space that you have. Potting shed is adorable.

    Your yard is beautiful! I see I am not the only quilting flower lover. I have 2 large beds, one my full sun perennial bed, and one my shade perennial bed. Right now the lilies are starting and the Japanese Iris are in full bloom.

    Your yard is beautiful. I especially loved seeing the peony. I would love to plant some, but I think it may be too warm here in the South. Thanks for sharing your paradise.

    Very pretty, the heat,wind and no rain in my area makes it impossible to have anything pretty for very long. How peaceful your yard looks.

    delightful! I am working on my garden like crazy..I have just lived here for 1 1/2years so mine is not nearly as lush but it is coming along. My peony plants took a real beating in the last rain but were so pretty for a short while..Oh well, next year!

    I have always been able to stay at home,so that leaves me much more time than many of you. My husband is a partner in the yards and we both enjoy the work. I have slowly begun to plant easy care perennials like daylilies and peonies,ect. Hostas are another easy care plant. Just a hobby I've always loved!

    Your flower beds are lovely. Also like your raised beds.
    You sure have a green thumb.
