This beautiful bloom is for my dear, sweet, loved friend Carrie. She is pregnant after years of loss, bills, sadness, frustration and procedures. And waiting. Waiting to ovulate, waiting to take a pregnancy test, waiting for the first 12 scary weeks to pass. Welcome to your 2nd trimester my friend! I'm beyond excited for you, Chris and Maya. What a wonderful family your little one will be born to. Love you.
Speaking of waiting, my peonies have finally opened. I believe this one is a Sarah Bernhardt variety. Is there anything in the world more beautiful than what nature gives us everyday?
This is my favorite flower and also happens to be the Indiana state flower. I take that as a sign that I was meant to live here.
What's your favorite cottage flower?
