My Secret Garden

Yes, you caught me … I staged this shot. :o) My peonies begged to be shown around the world.

I made this quilt a few years ago and it was paper pieced and hand quilted.

Have a great day!

Your peonies are stunning! I love Peonies, they do not do well where I live, I think we are simply to hot for them... yours are gorgeous!!!!!!!

Rose Marie the peonies are beautiful. Every childhood summer memory for me has peonies in it. My mom still has one of my grandmas bushes in her yard. She keeps telling me that I can take some of it, but remember that green thumb I don't have...
The wallhanging is wonderful. Perfect for spring/summer!

The color is great and in front of the quilt they just pop. So pretty.

It doesn't matter that it's staged it is a beautiful shot. Your flowers are to die for both the real ones and the quilted ones.
