Confirmation and stupid odds

Hey everybody! I hope you are all doing well, we are here. :) Madeleine was confirmed in our Lutheran faith yesterday alongside 18 of her classmates.

yes, it is true, her favorite color is also pink! :)

The weather was a sunny 97 degrees. We had a beautiful time with family.

grape scented iris

Chocolate Chess iris


And finally friends, what do you say the odds would be on me digging up the peonies that were here when we moved in, writing with sharpie marker on each one, pink or white (on the leaves). Then I went to transplant them 2 days later and all the pink and white markings were gone.  I guessed. I figured I will plant 6 and surely get pink and white. Well 4 of the 6 have started to bloom and guess what?! Yes! They are all white so far! The one I gave my MIL?? Pink of course! :(

I finished The Fiddler, it was great. Worth the read.

stitching and reading,
Vickie

Your daughter's confirmation day sounds perfect, Vickie--congratulations to her. So glad family could be there to witness it...

Beautiful iris and WHITE peonies! Better than no peonies (which is what I have!!). I really should think ahead and buy some bulbs this fall...
