Ches ordered 10 Sarah Bernhardt peonies for me as a gift this spring (I'm all into plants right now..is that age?), and about seven are coming up. I got a gorgeous white one from my wonderful friend, Tiffany, for Mother's Day! It was sooo beautiful. I didn't want to cut the blooms, and I didn't want to plant it yet..I wanted to sit and stare at the gorgeous flowers! : )
Today we shopped the peonies, and because most of them are already finished blooming for the season, I had to keep googling pictures of the varieties to see what they'd look like next year! I chose three: Kansas Double Peony (magenta/dark pink), Nancy Nicholls peony (blush to white), and maybe a Klehm? (med. pink). Soo beautiful. Want to see the most amazing choices? Try this site. (Looks like how joy feels.) : )

Even picked a big pot for one!
|The largest! But then..they didn't have a cart with wheels that wasn't really dirty. I want it for inside..so I'll have to wait. And just keep looking.|
|I've learned this little lesson about how good things come to those who wait, so I'm more patient.|
|..I can wait!|
ps..Clay decided to go back to class today. And he received an apology from the coach. I just told him I'd support him either way, and he probably chose better than I would have. God bless him.
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
