garden peonies
Happy Friday! This week I harvested my first bouquet of peonies from my yard. They’re so puffy and swoon-worthy, I love them! Seriously tempted to plant a lot more peonies this year, but I’m running out of room. What’s your favorite flower for bouquets, and do you grow your own?

Speaking of flowers, love this fantastic embroidery art, and the statement.

Whoa, did you know that if you turn on keyboard shortcuts in your settings, you can do a bunch of stuff in gmail with a single key? Sounds handy, so I just turned it on to try it out myself. (May not be recommended if you have a cat that walks on your keyboard, though.)

This chocolate mousse raspberry tart looks amaaazing. Can’t wait for raspberry season to start!

More proof that everything, even a plant potting bench, looks better in Millennial pink.

If the above link has you wanting to build a potting bench of your very own, here are some free plans for a simple potting bench.

Make a cute hanging copper plant pot.

Yesterday I read this fascinating story about forgotten Muslim WWII heroine Noor Inayat Khan, and I couldn’t get it out of my head, and then I read about Arlene Violet, a former nun who became the attorney general of Rhode Island. What amazing women!

  1. Here on Canada’s East Coast, near the ocean mine are just a few sports so far. Weather has been terrible. I love the lilacs, another week or so before they bloom. Flowering crab apple blooming now.

    1. I love lilacs too! Mine are all done for the year, sigh. Sorry about the bad weather! Maybe it means you’ll enjoy the flowers even more when they finally bloom.
