Mitalee and Flowers.

 Mitalee , " This is the cat tree I like to sit on to gaze through the window behind me. I can see the garden through it."

Mitalee, " Our magnolia tree has bloomed! "

Mitalee , " The leaves in the right corner of this clay pot are dahlia leaves. We will show you when this plant blooms. The stems will be very tall and the flowers will be large and lovely!"

Mitalee, " The rose bush is heavy with flowers now."

Mitalee , " Don't you just love the scent of roses? So heady!"

Mitalee , " The irises are now in bloom as well."

Mitalee, " We put some irises in a vase inside and I have not touched them.Yet."

Irises now indoors.

Mitalee , " We planted this peony in a rain barrel. This is the first bud which is slowly opening.When it blooms , it will look like one of the peonies pictured below which we bought at the Farmer's Market last weekend."

Our bouquet of outrageously lush peonies.

Mitalee , " I love flowers. Don't you?!"

Have a wonderful day!
See you soon.

  1. your flowers are just exquisite! Can smell their lovely aroma from here!

  2. You have such lovely blooms! Our human wishes she could still smell, she misses the scents of flowers. :-)

    What do you do for your peonies, to get the ants off? Soak them in a bit of water with dish soap first?

  3. Mitalee, you are looking so adorable and relaxed. Your flowers are beautiful.

  4. Mitalee your furs match the cat tree colours - what a great place to be if you want to hide from the Malou and Levon. You have some very pretty flowers in your garden and the magnolia bloom is lovely.

  6. My imagination is working overtime to capture all the fragrances!

    Your magnolia bloom is perfect! The roses have been gorgeous this year...makes me wish I had a rose bush. Our family loves peonies. The maternal grandparents had several peony plants in their yard.
