Packing and First Peonies

I feel like these last few weeks before the move are flying by. However, I do feel quite organized so far. I have to say, the house is looking quite sparse. It's mostly only essentials remaining now, as most everything else is either donated or packed away.

I've been patiently waiting for my Peonies to open, and with the last few cool days, they're taking their sweet time. I would have been very sad to leave them behind and not enjoy one last beautiful season of blooms. I'm fairly certain I have nothing to worry about though, and hope that within the next few days, they will all have opened, and will be a wonderful send off.

The very first blooms, in the sunniest of spots, have already opened. So the rest will follow soon.

This is the walk up to our front entrance. It's lined with Sarah Bernhardt Peonies. So many blooms!

Today, between filling boxes, I decided to sit for a while and enjoy the soft rain and flip through some books for more ideas.

My shelves are all bare now, with only a few lamps, mirrors and of course, vases throughout the house. They'll be one of the last things packed as I intend to enjoy my cuttings for as long as possible.


  1. How wonderful your new adventure shall be. Though there may be a gentle sadness leaving the home where you first brought your sweet babes home to and the love you've shared within those walls the new home will be filled with the same treasures and your family. You'll be closer to Mom and Dad plus just think of all those new bare walls and shelves you have yet to fill,,,
    My sincerest best wishes for a smooth move and I look forward to you sharing your new home with us as well.

  2. I hope all goes smoothly with your house move. What a wonderful legacy you have left the new owners of your house...those gorgeous Sarah Bernhardt peonies. I wish they were mine. I am sure your new home will be even more beautiful, as you definitely have a knack for making things beautiful. Lots of love, Linda x
