Gone, But Not Forgotten!



Just went out to my backyard and am sad to report that my lilacs are definitely on the way out! Most have at least 1/4 of the blooms brown. What is left still smells great.

Unfortunately, the Lily-of-the-Valley are all gone too. I love their fragrance and constantly wonder how the Coty company gets the Muguet de Bois perfume to smell just like the flower?!They barely lasted a week!

However, those Forget-Me-Nots are still perfect! They've been in suspended in full bloom for what has seemed like a month already and show no signs of waning. I love these delicate and feminine blue flowers too. They look like they belong on a calico dress or on some pretty bedroom wallpaper!

Mother of Invention, anxiously awaiting the Peonies!

Don't be sad to report the natrual development of the nature. I do understand you, but count you're blessing while they are there and remember they will come back next year:-)

I know what you mean, we are lucky to have so many beautiful flowers and because they all come up at different times, we always have something nice to look at in our gardens and backyards!
The peonies are almost ready to burst forth a beautiful fuscia colour!

Ours our pink and white varigated, but there's only a little white in them.

My mom has lovely white ones in her yard, but they are shaded and not ready to bloom.
