friday find ... a whole lotta peony love

I love Friday Finds with Kim Klassen ... "it is a place to gather and share ... a place to cherish life's simple pleasures" ... doesn't that sound like such an inviting place?

It seems like ages since i wrote my last post ... well maybe only three weeks ... but a whole lifetime of "stuff" has happened in a few short weeks... and not so good stuff.  
There have been days that i have been completely overwhelmed ... 

I have been trying to practice all the goodness that Kim has been teaching us in her wonderful Be Still class ... breathe, be mindful, be grateful ... and you know ... it does help.

Okay ... enough about me ... let's get on to my friday find!

the flower of the spring ...

Summertime means one thing here in the midwest ... Market time!!  I just love our farmer's market ... full of all kinds of fresh organic goodness. 

One of my favorite farmers drives all the way from Michigan every friday to sell her fruits and flowers.  She has over two acres just filled with flowers...can you imagine?
This week her booth was brimming with these beauties ... peonies of every colour... mixed with the baby's breath was just too hard to resist!

You can bet where you will find me every friday morning ... at the market deciding which lovely will find its way back to my home!

  1. Nancy I would love to visit your market it sounds wonderful, hope your weekend is full of peace...

  2. Sorry to hear the last few weeks have been overwhelming for you ... but how nice that you discovered that market! can you imagine - 2 acres of flowers!! You created some beautiful art with the peonies.

  3. So sorry life has been too much Nancy, hope it calms down and becomes Still as a Summer Breeze. I miss the wonderful farmers markets we don't get much of them here in the desert of AZ. just too hot have to wait until winter for our Farmer's Market. The peony is just beautiful along with your edit.

  4. Our market is on Wednesdays and it was so great to go again this week after being gone. More fruits and other yummies starting to pop up.

  5. Beautiful! Wish I could pop over to join you!

  6. Beautiful image, have to love peonies and baby's breath !

  7. Beautiful photo! You capture the essence of it perfectly. I wish the next week is especially better for you. Sending good thoughts your way!

  8. Sorry to hear about the not so good stuff, Nancy Jean. I hope you're coping, and wish you well with it. I love peony roses so much and your photo of the beautiful pink one with the baby breath is enchanting. All the best, Bonny

  9. Sorry to hear about the not so good stuff, NancyJean, hope it's going well now ...
    Sounds like a great market, wish I could be there too :-)
    You've captured that pretty peony so beautifully !
    Nice weekend,

  10. Oh, how pretty...I need to purchase some peonies one of these days because they're such a beautiful flower. I'm so sorry about your rough few weeks and I hope things have taken a turn for the better.

  11. I hope you find peace and joy in the midst of everything. Your peony shot is lovely...takes me to a good place.
