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.

Sharing my Friday Flower, plus a Celebration at Wall Flower Studio - It's our First Anniversary!

In honour of my Mom, (who we lost 11 years ago today), and who loved her 'Lemon Lilies',
I was thrilled to be able to take a photo of them in bloom, with a bonus Tiger Swallowtail butterfly
It's the First Anniversary of my brick and mortar shop, this weekend!
I think that's a good reason to celebrate.
If you happen to be in #MyHaliburtonHighlands, please stop in and say hello!
It has been  a wonderful experience running my shop this past year. The store has evolved into more than I could have ever imagined! One of the best parts is that I've met and made many a new friend due to this venture. This is my opportunity to Thank You for for shopping locally!

The view when you walk in the door. 

Apothecary, soap, botanical oil, bath salt and more...
Succulents galore!

Air plants galore!

Native Bee Hotels at the shop!
And much, much more!
With much gratitude to family, friends, and of course, my customers.
