some flower pics. & aren't i the lucky one!!

I am sure spoiled here lately. Winning a couple of giveaways and a RAK!! A huge THANK YOU to Lisa, Cath & Kay.

Here's the stash i've won at Lisa's blog. Now, how i wish i don't need to sleep and just get on with stitching!!

Look at these lovely goodies from Cath. The design of the floss holder is a freebie at GOS for anyone who is curious for this lovely design.


And finally the RAK from Kay.

Took some pictures of my flowers here yesterday while the weather is still bright and sunny!
Aren't the peonies lovely!!

These another kind of peonies, i think still a while before it blooms and i do hope they will not break soon especially with the weather now-very windy!


I am not so sure right now if this bush name 'Weigela'. I've planted the new one last april on Max's grave. Thought i've bought the red color one then but it looks like the same with the older one. oh well, both are blooming beautifully!
It's a pity we can't go and sit outside to enjoy the view. Sure looks rainy right now.
Took Chris to the football field this morning as it's their camping weekend. Put up the tent and all...now we are waiting for a message if we are going back to break and take the whole package back home. That was the last e-mail note this morning, they will try perhaps the weather will change and it will stay dry but looking outside now it is dark and windy- it is now 5:30pm.

As always, i really appreciate your visits on my blog and THANKS so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. Wishing you all a happy weekend!

Congratulations Mylene, you certainly deserve a few presents.

It seems that your garden looks more organised than mine, love all your flowers. The Weigela is lovely, and mine comes back better every year.

Hopes your weather gets warmer soon, it's the same here though.
