I'm So Happy About My New Friends!

Nice Weekend

Hi,everyone...I haven't posted in a few days. I've been trying to get out of the house more. For those of you that don't know me yet, I have serious spinal issues. I've had four disc fusions and need another. As if that wasn't bad enough, I've had fibromyalgia and the operations for the last 18 years.
So my goal has been to get out and move around and start driving again. Anyone with back issues knows that the WORST place to be is in a car. But, I've become somewhat of a shut-in, only going out for
doctor appointments. And worst of all, no sewing or hobbies of any kind. That's just a sin not to be
in the workshop if you ask me. So I'm determined to stop sinning!
The temperatures dropped drastically since Friday. The ninety plus degree weather is over for now. It's 55 degrees right now, quite a difference. We got the quilts back out in the living room for when we
are watching television. My peony bush has bloomed. It's white with raspberry red streaks in the petals and the scent is incredible. Like a cross between lemon verbena and roses. Yummm... I have a blossom in a mason jar in the kitchen by the sink so that we can get a whiff when we're working in there.
I took pictures of the rhododendrons and the peony. I still have to get the family, dogs and flowers posted to the blog. Ashley is coming by tomorrow and she and I are going to transfer pictures from her laptop to mine so that I can do my uploading and posting this week. She took some gorgeous pictures on the Cape last weekend on her getaway.
Not much else to report from the weekend. We're wrapped up and watching old classics on Netflix.
Off to bed early so I can get some more work done in the shop tomorrow.
Warm Regards,

I have no idea what the genus name is for this peony because we bought the house from absentee owners and I didn't get a chance to find out about this particular plant. White Flower Farm, Springhill and Breck's online all sell peonies so it might be there. I don't remember my peonies from our previous house having a scent. Do peonies have different scents?Everything else in the yard I can identify!
Warm Regards,

I Look Forward To Your Comments
