Do you see how gorgeous these flowers are? They are peonies. Beautiful! My mother-in-law, she has some beautiful peonies. All different colors. And she inspired me to try to grow some.
In the Spring, I planted some of these beautiful flowers. Not the plants. I bought bulbs. For 4 or 5 different colors. I planted them outside. Near our patio. And I hoped that they'd grow into gorgeous bushes. Because I wanted to cut off some of these blooms. I wanted to be able to put them around our home.
But like my lilies, my peonies didn't grow. They didn't come out. Not a crack out of the ground. What is going on? Maybe I should have just bought the plants. But they're so expensive! I'm not a gardener. But I'm also not a failure. I'm going to try again next Spring.
Hi! My name is Manders. I have been happily married to Billy for 6 years! My husband and I have the most gorgeous 4 year old daughter, Lauren. We also have 2 year old twins! Before I met Billy, I was a makeup artist. Since we got married, I have happily taken on the role of wife and mother. It's the best job out there! My husband plays in a country western band, and when they are performing, I do Lola's hair and makeup. Lola is one of my very best friends. She introduced Billy and I all those years ago. In short, I love the simple life, a loving family, and amazing friends! My email is MandersinLove (at) yahoo (dot) com.
