Picking Flowers...And Mowing

This weekend much of our time was spent picking flowers....
like peonies from my garden...
they smell heavenly...

and admiring my clematis vines....

sittin' on our porch...

singing to the girls...

Oh...and mowing.

Remember when I mentioned I like mowing in this post, well, it's all cuz Lulu makes mowing so much fun. Thanks Lulu!

And how was your weekend?


  1. Wow! I am in awe of your green thumb - and growing all of my favorite flowers too!! Lovely!

  2. Your flowers are super beautiful, Andrea. But oh my gosh, Lulu is fantastic! I will have to show my husband - he will be SO jealous.

  3. The flowers are gorgeous. How fun Lulu looks, I would love to mow (and so would my hubby) if we had a Lulu of our own. Don't think I'd ever stop, maybe even mow the neighbor's yards too.

  4. Your Peonies are absolutely beautiful!!

  5. your pictures are gorgeous ... I love the clematis ...your porsh looks so lovely ... I wish I had one like that ...

  6. Lulu looks like a "red belly". Is that what she is? My grampa had one from the '40's...one owner. xo Joan

  7. I'm so jealous of your flowers! Oh, you were darling in 1st grade. ;) Blessings... Polly

  8. Lulu is great...wish i had her! Though i do not have that much lawn.....your flowers are amazing!!! Sounds like a lovely weekend!

  9. I love peonies! So much that I'm going to buy some shrubs to plant this fall.

    Your corner of the world looks heavenly. :)

    Thanks so much for your sweet coments this past week. I was feeling so low and they helped a lot.


  10. Great pictures!! I WANT THAT CHICKEN!! She is gorgeous. But you can keep the tractor though. One of the reasons I didn't complete my Pre-Vet med BS (maybe one day NOT!) is because I was going to have to take tractor repair. Ummm NO!! Swine management, check. Animal Sanitation, check. Disease Control, check. Bovine Breeding program, check. Tractor Repair, NO!!

  11. You continue to amaze me. Lulu??

    I cannot imagine you riding that thing! But she's a beaute! If she were mine, I'd have her decked out for each of the holidays! Do you?

    I just awarded you a blog award over on my blog! You deserve it!


  12. I love those peonies, how gorgeous! I just have to grow them when I move.

  13. What beautiful photos! I love your garden and we are hoping that our next house has one.....just need to finish renovating this one first :-)
