Happy Memorial Day!

It's been more like autumn these past few days in Virginia, this morning was chilly and foggy. But when the sun broke, I grabbed my clippers...
White peonies, one of the very best things about the month of May!

Couldn't think of a better way to enjoy my coffee. Seems so peaceful right?

Ah, what you don't see- significant pouting and completely unimpressed with my morning haul.

At least these will be here after I attend to others!
Enjoy Your holiday!


  1. Remi has no taste! I'm loving your white peonies and that fabulous leather chair they're beside. Is it new or old? SHARE!

    Happy Memorial Day Rebecca!

    1. Hi Debra,
      Thank you, the chair is called the Dunhill chair and though it looks old, it was purchased a few years ago. We have two and they are perfect in the library-men love them!

  2. So beautiful, what a lovely vase choice. I hope you had a great weekend. ~ebh

  3. Such a beautiful setting Rebecca! Love it! We had a cold and rainy Memorial Day in Calif. but today it is sunny and a perfect Spring day!!
    Enjoy your beautiful peonies and relaxing chair and sweet pup.

  4. Hi Emily,
    Welcome and thanks so much!

  5. Your flowers are gorgeous....and there in the perfect setting..

  6. I adore peonies, and am thrilled that we are now just coming into their glory here in the Hudson River Valley. Yours look marelous in that very handsome vase. I am a wee bit jealous, I admit! Reggie

  7. the last centerpiece is clever.
