Wow....a 9 hr drive!? I am soo not good at long distances! Hope you had a nice time at the reunion though! Love all the pics you shared! :) Have a great rest of the week!


I don't quite know what my deal is but I love gnomes. They just make you smile! Glad you are home safe and sound.


You go girl. We did an 8 hour drive a few years back and ugh! Never again. Fabulous backyard photos. Love the gnome.


I love the gnome... He looks like he has just always lived there. In that tree. For centuries. And peonies...yes, yes, yes! It's always a rotating answer for me when asked about my fave flower...hydrangeas, peonies, and gardenias. I have about six peony bushes, and I have somehow managed to plan trips during their blooming times for the past two years. And by the time I get home, they are brown and kissing the ground. This coming year... I *WILL* be home to watch my peonies bloom, so help me!!! I discovered picnik about a year And easy. Which for me is a must. :o) Onto Monk...I had never seen an episode until recently. My husband insisted that I watch it because he calls me "Monk" all the time because of, well, let's call them my "particular ways." Am I OCD? No. Am I completely anal retentive about almost everything? Guilty. Okay, I'm seriously not as bad as Monk...but I do see some eerie similarities...Haha!


Great pictures - flowers are beautiful! Love the path too - looks like it'd be great for kids to explore! Hope you are well and recovered from the super long drives! Catherine x

I love the little gnome! So sweet but he needs a gnome wife! I also love peonies. My old dog Brownie died several years ago and my father buried her under her favourite peony bush. The photographs all look beautiful. I will have to explore that photography site. Enjoy your weekend Allison. xx


A 9 hr drive with a child?? God Bless You!!! I just finished up a 1 hr. airplane ride with Hope & it just about drove me up the wall :)

I love your photos of your yard. I see that you have used several varieties that work in shady areas, which is what I have as well.


I love the little gnome peeking in your back garden! So sweet!

Evy is an angel to behave on such a long journey. :O)

I love picnik. It's my latest obsession. I can't upload any photos without 'picniking' it first!

Have a lovely week

and after all that I forgot to say what gorgeous flowers you have! I love roses and peonies. We've just planted another new peony this year, so I'm looking forward to seeing it flower next year.



Hi there,
Thanks for sharing! Love the photos. Glad you had a fun time. I loved the new Psych!! We love that show, it cracks me up. Plus they have Santa Barbara refferences. I'm only an hour away from Santa Barbara. Even though they don't film it there.
Have a great week,


I love peonies, yours is so pretty! Also love your back yard and that little path to nowhere! :)


I love all of the beautiful pictures of your home! Your decorating style is so delightful!

Where can I order a full yard of ale made of plastic? It must hold 2.5
UK pints, be 3 UK feet in length and in the traditional style. It must
also be shipped to me in the UK within 8 weeks.

The more you learn, the more you know, The more you know, the more you forget. The more you forget, the less you know. So why bother to learn.

sharp mental division between what is 'on the table' and the reserve left at home which you can fall back on. If that is so, the only financial disincentive that would be expected to change the behaviour of financial bosses is something that bites on their reserves. My hunch is that the liability of the responsible bosses of a reguladsfated financial corporation needs to become much less limited should the corporation fail or be taken into administration by its regulator.

Such a good writing, or by I saw for the first time. I'm quite happy, you are a good writer


I don't think highly of Coach Bags, what about you?
