~Flowers around the House and a Winner!~

I love fresh cut flowers around the house especially if they are from my garden. 

With all the crummy rainy weather we have been having, what better way to liven up damp spirits than to cut fresh flowers (in between rain showers) and place them in a vase for all to see and smell.

(ok - these aren't from my garden, my husband bought them for me)

We did have a few "visitors" come running out of the peonies, but a few whacks with a flip flop solved that problem!

Nothing like waking up to sweet smelling roses.

Also for those waiting and anticipating, sorry for the delay.....

The winner of the $40 gift certificate to CSN stores is.......
