Heaven (3 IMAGES)

This year my gardens have been gloriously beautiful because of all the rain we have had this Spring.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen more flowers on my Lilacs then this year and with cool temperatures the flowers remained scenting the very air with perfume for longer then usual.  To say I was in heaven doesn’t quite cut it.  I live for this time of the year when my Peonies and my Lilacs permeate the molecules in our yard sending me straight to Bliss.  I decided to allow my Peonies freedom, that is, no tying them in so they don’t droop.  I was only respecting what they wanted, to be truthful and in return the Beauty I saw still to this day puts tears in my eyes.

No matter if these flowers did last longer this year, that amount of time is never long enough.  My idea of heaven is to have the scent of Roses, Lilacs, and Peonies as the very “air” itself.  How I miss these flowers already!  As you can see on my watermark, the date was June 6th, which has been here and gone, as are my flowers.  The temps soared into the 90’s and so with the climbing temps my flowers did droop and fade away.  Until next year, Dear Ones!!

Enjoy a few images of my magical gardens.  I wish there was someway I could actually record their “perfume” for you.  I wish!!

To those Dads out there, Happy Father’s Day!

Update on Irene:  Irene is awake and talking.  She should soon be transferred from the ICU to a regular hospital room.  Thank you thank you thank you for all of you who prayed for her, sent her Energy and Light, and thought good thoughts.  Our combined efforts assisted Irene to live as doctors and nurses did their best to pull Irene through her health crisis.

  1. Oh I could smell them from here Amy…how could I not take in those beautiful scents from the lovely images you have shown. There’s magic in the love created in those gardens, and the love bestowed by their owner ❤ 😀

  2. Thanks for sharing the beauty of your gardens, Amy, and for the work you put into having them be that pretty. Thanks for the Dad’s Day wishes. I am taking it slow today, after a filling breakfast with Faith.

    1. You are welcome, Dan, and thank YOU for recognizing it is hard work to maintain gardens as I have and to make them beautiful. Good to hear you are taking it easy today! We all deserve to have days like that. 😄

    1. SO happy you came by to see my gardens, Eliza. That is not all of them but I was focusing on my Lilacs and Peonies. And you are most welcome about Irene. I’m not sure if Irene’s boyfriend knows English so he may not be sending me any more updates. Crossing fingers Irene herself will be able to access her phone. She made it, Eliza!! You have no idea how relieved I am!! 🌸

      1. You are right Amy, their season is very short. That is why they are soooo special. I adore their subtle fragrance and the beauty of when the bud opens and the flower is in full bloom. 🙂 A very special and unique flower. Milanka

  3. Your yard and gardens are beautiful and so green from lots of rain. I am just wondering if you have ever tried cutting back your peonies when they are a foot or so high? I have done that after experiencing so many years of them being weighted down and falling over to the ground. They don’t grow as high then but are just as full as usual. I do that to my bleeding hearts and black eyed susans too. I am disappointed that my white bleeding heart is done blooming already but I have broken off a few stems and planted them ao I will have a bigger area of them next year. I love you blog because I love nature and all kinds of flowers and pictures of gardens. Thanks for the beautiful views.

    1. Thank you, Sharon, for your compliment regarding my gardens. To answer your question no I have not cut my Peonies back. Why? I’m the type of the gardener who “listens” to what my plants and flowers want and so allow them that. I do prune and I do cut back and I do form bushes and trees and certain plants and of course I winterize my roses, but other then that I like to give freedom (to a point) to my gardens. No I don’t allow my creeping sort to get out of control and into the grass. I do my best to contain everything so they are within the confines of the garden borders. Fascinating how you garden. We tend to have the same Love but have different techniques. 😄💞

  4. Such beautiful Gardens and blooms dear Amy.. And I know the time it takes to keep them looking like that.. So love Lilacs.. We had them as children in our home garden.. Peonies I have grown.. but for some reason when I transplanted it , it failed to bloom.. I read I may have planted too deep.. And agree with you about fragrances.. My Jasmine was intoxicating is the only word to describe it.. So strong and beautiful its scent was while in flower..

    I am busy doing a make over in my own back garden this Summer.. and enjoying the results..
    Which is why I am less on my rounds here at WP too.. The weather here in the UK is just too good to be behind a Keyboard.. 🙂
    Lots and LOTS of love your way Amy.. Beautiful photos xx

    1. I’ve been enjoying the outdoors too, Sue, even in the rain. I hiked 7 miles today at times in pouring rain. IMO the “light” is perfect for photographers and put me straight to Bliss. The park was so quiet and I only crossed paths with 2 people who were running. Being spotty with blogging is what my reality is right now. I refuse to be indoors and on a computer. Much Love to you! 🌸🌼💓
