    Oh how beautiful. I agree, the little things in our lives are the most meaningful! I had to check out your site before leaving for carpal tunnel surgery (right hand of course)! Can’t wait till next time! Thanks for brightening my morning.

    That was tons of fun! My favorite is that watering can with the pink blooms all over it and the writing on the water spout, so quirky! Your photos of the peonies are breathtaking…M is definitely for Mary!

    Yes, the little things that mean the most! I love it all today but must say, the frog is my favorite! Happy Memorial Day. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    Oh Mary, everything is just beautiful. I ADORE peonies, and we have some planted right now but they are only up about 5 inches;):) NEXT year, hopefully, we will get flowers! Love your new watering can too. I am inspired to go take some May morning shots! Except it is VERY cloudy right now. XO, pinky

    Beautiful as always, Mary. Just wanted you to know that I made your Agua Fresca for a party on Tuesday. I forgot to take pictures of the evening so I borrowed yours and linked back to you. Your photos are always better anyway. Thanks for the recipe, it was delicious!

    Ah, you just take the prettiest photos! Blessings to you – Dawn

    Peonies are my favorite. We had a very long garden path lined with them on both sides when I was growing up. It was a pea gravel path with wonderful old bushes and I have loved them ever since. Thanks for the memories.

    I love that shot of the sprinkler head!!!!!

    My goodness…your peonies are huge and SO healthy!!! You have not only a green thumb, but I am convinced both your fingers AND toes are tinged, too!!!

    Peonies are one if my very favorite flowers! I have buds and look forward to those glorious scented blooms. Love the M :)

    Arrived in Maine today and see that my peonies are about a month away, but the tulips are beautiful. They are not a bad substitute!

  20. May 24, 2013 at 3:12 am

    Your peonies are gorgeous. You’re beautiful photography always makes me smile!

  21. May 24, 2013 at 8:24 am

    Gorgeous post, Mary. I love the blue jar floral. Peonies are a favorite of mine.

    So pretty… I’ve tried some flowers out front, but the sand and harsh sun from FL always seem to kill the more fragile flowers… I also neglect them during the week and water once one a week…

    Such cuteness. I love it all, but took particular note of the climber on the wrought iron. I have a wrought iron gate that I’d like to put in the garden, but I’m in a new place where the garden is a blank canvas and, frankly, I don’t have a clue.

    M is for Mary is Marvelous:-}

    Beautiful flowers, rusty backdrops and the gorgeous sunlight peeking through. I love you photographs!

  27. May 28, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    I can see how this would make you Happy! Very beautiful and peaceful.

    Your mason jar photo reminds me of one of the art galleries @ Seaside. There were several large mason jar paintings….mostly the jars on the beach with the ocean in the background. Thanks again for linking-up!

    Exquisite photos – M is for Marvelous. I adore your Peonies! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
