Okay, this post is just breathtakingly beautiful!! I love pink anyway. The little pink vintage quilt is so lovely. I spotted some Tilda fabric! I love that beautiful magenta rose bush! I can almost smell the fragrance. Thank you for this post. When I need some eye candy this week, I'll come back and enjoy it again. :-)

Roses are my favorite flowers and Peonies are my second. Your flowers and garden are very pretty.

Your roses sure are pretty - love all the different shades. Roses is one of my husband's favorite flowers, and at each home, we tried to plant at least one or two. Our winters are not the best for them, but our last ones have been pulling through. Looking forward to them growing taller each year. Love your peonies and lovely stack of quilt pics - beautiful!
