Variety- Eden Climber & Sarah Bernhardt Peony. Loveliness!

and peonies from my garden. Aren't they scrumptious! This is my first peony bush and I was thrilled to have such a harvest this soon. The blooms are exploding with fragrance and has delicate pale pink fluffy petals.

Jessy can't resist their sweet aroma...

Dovetales magazine is out in stores now.. If you are a subscriber, you should be getting yours in the mail very soon. In this issue I did a feature story on one of my favorite Swedish Designers, Anette from http://lantlif.blogspot.com/. Her style and eye for design has her in a class all of her own. A sneak peek into Anette's home in Dovetales Summer 2009.

Next, is a piece I did on Jean from Horse Feather Antiques, the beautiful scenic rt 6A on Cape Cod. Jean is a veteran of decorating magazines and one look into her serene home will tell you why... This issue is a must see!!!!

You can see both these articles plus much more decorating tips by visiting your local Barnes & Noble or order on line at-

Hi Jo~
Your flowers/garden are so beautiful. Can't wait to get my magazine in the mail. I have been so drawn to the Scandinavian blogs as of late and those soothing colors are calling my name! How wonderful you interviewed Anette, I can't wait to read the Horse Feather Antiques article too. Always a place of inspiration here, sweet Jo... feel like I've been swept away.

Forgot to mention Jessy, so sweet. He's stealing the show from the roses almost ;)

The roses and especially the peonies just took my breath away they are so beautiful. I'm an unattractive older lady who, if asked to describe myself internally as being a flower, it would be either a pink rose or a pink peony. I would be your picture!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

Hello Jo-Anne! Just want to say that your blog is absolutely fantastic. Such lovely photos of roses and peonies....
I´m from Sweden and I do agree - Anette´s home is something quite special and she´s always charing so much of her ideas in a very humble way!
Wish you a very nice day!
