Monday, Monday

Good Morning!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Sunday spent with family and the one's you love.
Rich and I spent Saturday afternoon with my Mom. We celebrated her birthday and Mother's Day. Her garden is really beautiful really beautiful right now and it is wonderful to visit.



These peonies are from my garden. The blooms are so heavy I decided to cut them and bring them inside before we got rain yesterday.



I spent some more time with Marietta over the weekend. Those are some scary looking doves. They are found on a lot of Deerfield samplers.
Yesterday I woke up all stuffed up and it is not any better today.
I was scheduled off today anyway, so I am going to lay low.
Hopefully I can focus enough to do some stitching.

Hugs!

Your peonies are so beautiful! Great progress on Marietta, too.
I'm sorry you're not feeling well - I hope it passes quickly.

Love the peonies. I planed some last year and they haven't bloomed yet. Hope you aren't sick with a cold. Maybe it's allergies.

I love peonies! Yours are very pretty. Nice progress on stitching.

And yeah, a full night's sleep does wonders. I still have pain while sleeping but at least I sleep laying down -and- it doesn't wake me up panting like a dog, lol.

I hope you feel better, too. Is it allergies?

Lots of birthdays seem to be in mid-May... Wishing your mom a very happy birthday, Chris. Your pink peonies are incredible! I really need to get some in my garden. We used to have them, but when we remodeled the house 16 years ago, they were destroyed...

Lovely progress on your sampler--sure hope you feel well enough to put in more stitches today :)

Feel Better! And yes I have to agree about the doves.

Melissa said...

Your Marietta is looking great! The peonies look lovely, especially in that vase. Our herbaceous peonies are not in bloom yet so I can admire yours!

I hope you feel better soon Chris! There seems a lot of that spring flu thing going around!
