Sharing some cut flowers from the garden for FloweringFriday - The last of the peonies

I don't know what it is about peonies... They're so beautiful, and they smell so good that I just want to eat them up. Strange, I know!

The blooms were so top heavy that they'd fallen over and the stems snapped. They're on their way out anyhow, but there is one bud opening, and since I'm not one to let these beauties rot on the ground, I cut them off the stem and put them in my favourite vintage McCoy vase.
This way I get to enjoy them while they last! Of course, it also means I'll be a little smarter next year and stake them so this doesn't happen again. ;)

I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish my dear American friends & family a very Happy 4th of July! Enjoy your celebration!

Cheers for now,
K.S. @ W.F.S.

Sharing some June blooms for Flowering Friday and a butterfly, too!

Ah, there's nothing more lovely than the heady scent of a big honkin' peony.
They remind me of petticoats, all in disarray! 

Butterflies are really just mobile flowers! This one was on our driveway this morning, so I picked it up, put it on the daisy, and snapped its photo. :)

Some of the earlier blooming Hostas in my garden. 

If I had to choose a favourite, it might just be Sweet William.
The colour of this one makes me think of sherbert for some reason!
Happy Summer everyone! 
Have a blooming good weekend... ~ K.S. @ W.F.S.
