I am joining in White Wednesday this week
Be sure to check out all the other wonderful posts at FADED CHARM 

This has been a beautiful Spring and today I'm sharing some of the White flowers that have bloomed in my yard...
 The Azaleas were beautiful until all the rain
but there are still some blooms hanging on

These sweet flowers are about gone now but so beautiful when they covered our yard for a few days

This gorgeous thing is in our front yard

 It was here when we bought the house and I don't know what it is

It has these beautiful flowers!

If someone knows the name of this plant please let me know~
UPDATE: Thanks to all who let me know this lovely flower is a peony!  

Happy White Wednesday!

I think some of those are fav! (well, besides hydrangeas...can I have two favs?)
The others I do not know what they are but they are so gorgeous!

aaahhh, girl I'm tired! I need to stay my butt HOME. I've been lonesome and now I'm just starting to catch up with my favorite friends here...I've so missed ya'll! Reading my comments from you was too sweet, I'm so glad you didn't forget about me while I was gone :)

Heading toward the weekend...woooo hoooo!

Definitely peonies, Linda. My paternal Grandma used to grow them. They come in deep magenta, too, and pink. They are a gorgeous flower from my childhood! Watch out for ants, though. ha! One time I took a big sniff of one and got an ant up my nose! ha! I'm not kidding. They smell so beautiful, though, and are sooooooo lovely. Thanks for the photos. Sincerely, Susan

Linda, those peonies are gorgeous...are they the sweet scented ones? I can't wait for mine to blossom, they smell better than roses!

Tina said...

Great pictures, Linda. Your unknown flower is a peony. We have lots here in Colorado, they're pretty hardy.

Sherry said...

Oh, your flowers are beautiful. It is a peony not sure which variety.

Charlotte said...

Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Sorry I took so long to respond. Your flowers are beautiful and lucky you with the peony. I have got to get me one.


I just love your Peonie, so beautiful, can't wait until they bloom here. Thank you for sharing.


Those gorgeous flowers are peonies. I recognized them right away. You are fortunate that they were there already, they are a bit pricey and they take some time to grow, but once they do... they come back beautifully year after year. Here is a little tip for you.. .if you don't already know... have you ever seen ants on the buds before they bloom? You need those ants to help the flowers open... I am not sure what exactly they eat to make that happen though.
Thank you for your encouraing words about my bipolar. now you know why I am jumping all over the place. ha! I do take medication for this. does your friend?
Blessings always!

Boy you sure were lucky the people before you loved flowers. They are gorgeous. Did you know that peony's need ants?
