I've been picking peonies in full bloom and buds this week, trying to shake the ants off, bringing the bouquet inside and still getting ants in the house.
I don't care. I ♥ fresh flowers. (picture from http://bluebirdnotes.blogspot.ca/)
Today, we put our American flag on the porch, for Monday is Memorial day...we remember all those who have helped protect our freedom!
I pulled a bunch of weeds (mostly silver maple seedlings that came from the neighbor's tree) today, near the baby tomato plants and lettuce. My littlest sister move to Oregon almost 9 months ago and we got her 3 blueberry bushes...they are thriving (had flowers on them last week) and have green blueberries on them now!
My sister gave me some herbal tea from St. Elizabeth's Skete, we enjoyed a pot of it last night. ♥ We had organic lavender chamomile tea tonight with our friends, Marina, Michael and Bethany...seriously, both teas were full of pretty yellow chamomile buds!
At the very bottom of this blog, you'll see the playlist...and if you want to listen to some nice music, I recommend Lenka:
A quiet day of rest - Picture from St Anthony's Monastery. *** I hope to share more soon about last week and weekend. So beautiful. *** Today I rested a lot. I may be coming dow...
