grab cheerfulness where you find it!



 
The pack of sponge scourers (£1.00 for 20 at the market)
are far too bright and  jolly to leave in a drawer!
 
Grab cheerfulness where you find it cos. . .
 
 
look what the rain did to my precious peonies. . .

 
I'm no gardener (understatement of the century)
but I adore my bed of peonies
which grow and multiply all on their own
and bloom like there's no tomorrow. . .
 
well this year, there wasn't.
sniff.

My home is covered in Virginia Creeper...Back and front....!
Been there for some 30yrs now. For the first time ever, Wednesday night wind, had blown some of it down.
Took my life in my hands yesterday, up the ladder, pinned it all back!
Seems as though, we've had all the seasons in one week....! :>).

Oh, what a shame re your lovely peonies. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those scourers might disappoint too - I bought some the other day and they're useless!! No 'scouring' action at all; they instantly go really floppy! X

My peonies have been in bud for ages but so far - wisely in view of the weather - they haven't bloomed. I live in hope !

Poor Peonies, sad when things like that happens. Love your cheeful diplay, some things really are too cheerful to hide away. The hail storm we had last week destroyed my corn plants, the watermelons and the pumpkins. On the cheerful side, the strawberries are blooming happily and I can`t wait to have a bowl of strawberries with ice cream. Hope your weekend is a cheerful and really nice one, Pam xx

Oh my, what a pity, those peonies are so lovely !
Sometimes when it keeps raining, I pick the flowers and take them inside, so I can enjoy them anyway ...
Nice weekend,
Sylvia

It's such a shame when it does that, I waited weeks last year for a poppy and it was ruined by rain the day it bloomed, it's just out today, I hope it doesn't rain.....:) x

Blowsy and beautiful, the peony, but oh so short-lived.

Peonies just seem fated here. Every year I end up cutting them and bringing them in because they always seem to bring the rain and the wind. I also find those panscrub/scourers very wantable and lovely to look at!

BadPenny said...

They are so big & blousy they just can't cope with the wind & rain.

Oh dear, thought they were licorice allsorts and was wondering why they were blue, need to put my glasses on. What a shame about your peonies, I'm amazed yours normally stand up without stakes, the heads are usually so heavy, but as some one suggested you now have an excuse to cut them and bring them indoors to enjoy. ♥
