Smart girl. Beautiful pictures. It didn't even occur to me to bring flowers from my old house to my new house. I planted four peonies and about eight hydrangeas last year, can't wait to see how they bloom, just been admiring the buds!


Your flowers are so beautiful! I love that you packed them up and carried them along with you and the family! :) And, I'm so happy that you are back to blogging! :)

I'm so glad they survived the move, they're gorgeous!


So happy they survived the move....and flowered this year! Mine usually don't bloom the first year after being transplanted. Happy to have you blogging again.


So pretty! What great news! Last year I decide to try planting some peony bulbs after seeing you peonies blooms on your blog! This spring...I have 4 plants with leaves but, no blooms. I remember you saying it can take years before the bulb blooms so I'm going to keep on waiting! This gives me lots of hope! I'm off to google how to ice the bulbs during winter! I'll have to try that this winter!

Ah yes, those blooms are lovely!!! I am totally in awe of God's creation. I look at how much detail went into creating the peony and I am just speechless.


GORGEOUS! Could you blog about how you take care of your peonies and other flowers (hydrangeas, roses)? I have a pretty green thumb, but for some reasons, my peonies won't bloom and my hydrangeas are just so-so. What does icing mean?

Glad to see you posting and hope you're loving Texas!

I, too, am in the DFW area, and will be watching to see how you grow my northern favorites, peonies and lilies of the valley. Yours are beautiful.


Katie! I am so happy for your delightful garden joys - what a pleasant surprise! There are so many partings with a move and it's nice that you didn't have to part with your favorite blooms! Our peonies are about2 weeks behind yours, but soon - very soon! I'm so glad you are blogging again - I've missed your sweetness and seeing the babies grow! Hope you are settling in well and have found some girl friends who love the Lord Jesus, His Word, their hubbies, their children, great food and vintage treasures like you do! I've been praying for some kindred hearts for you and Mike!

That was a smart idea! I live in Dallas (McKinney, actually) and I find it difficult to grow many things here, even under the best of circumstances. Spring isn't too bad, but once summer hits, everything shrivels. :(

I've had great luck with canna lilies and iris plants. I ignore them and they thrive.


I hope you are having a wonderful summer! Miss your posts but, I know you are busy enjoying your new home and new friends!
