Hands in the Dirt: June Blooming

The garden is getting prettier and prettier!  This mix of heavy rain and bright warm sunshine is the perfect recipe for a great big flowery garden!


And it's hard to believe, but the lily of the valley has already come and gone for me.  Really important to treasure the moments and stop to smell the flowers. 

Here, I used the salvage from fabric I was working with to tie a nosegay of lily of the valley together.  So darling and smelled divine!


The next flowers that really come en force... are the peonies!  Just remember to shake off the ants!


Oh yes, I'm loving my hands in the dirt!  Weeds be afraid... very afraid!!

Hi Christie! All your photos are amazing! I love peonies and lilies of the valley (we have them in Finland)! I forgot to say yesterday: how you kept yourself not to tell us about Sammy before!?
