Hello Everyone,

The past couple of days have been HOT around here and I love it!! I am one of those people who is not built to live in the cold... but alas it is cold here for about a good 6 months of the year.  

This Memorial Day weekend, the "unofficial" start of the summer, was just the way I like it... HOT!  I took the time to walk around the house and snap some shots of my peonies in bloom.

This peony is slightly pink around the edges and then white and yellow.  

This is one of my favorites, hot pink with a dash of yellow.  

Here is another one with a little bug on the petal.

This is the Festivus Maximus Peony, one of my favorites.  I just love all the petals and the pink, white and yellow.  I think that peonies have to be one of my favorite flowers.

How about you, what is your favorite flower?

Being that it has been hot, the AC has been on in the house and the cats are enjoying a little snuggle on the window seat.

But, the BIG news is that we went out and the car thermometer read...

... 107 degrees Fahrenheit!! Can you believe it?  In actually the temp was about 96 degrees.  

Tomorrow, I am off for my retreat!! I am getting packed and ready to go, so stay tuned for lots of quilty pics coming your way!

Until Next Time...
