Rain | {The Serenity Project}

We have enjoyed some beautiful spring days, but we have also had our share of chilly, rainy days.

I am a person who doesn’t mind the rain though. The good news is it brings us so much greenery and pretty flowers. I can NOT wait for the peonies in my front yard to bloom!

Seeing all these beautiful flowers make me think about future gardens. Someday I would love to have my own cutting garden so I can have flowers in my kitchen that I have grown.

I haven’t had much success with growing things in the past but maybe someday.


For now, I enjoy what is popping up around me.

  1. I love greenery Eileen. Your images are gorgeous and just my thing. Love everything about them. I don’t mind the rain for the very same reasons, but it’s nice to get sunshine too. After similar weather to your own, we are having a lovely week with the sun shining.


  2. I love all the green in your post! We are getting rain right now and we need it. Like the lilacs, my peonies are way behind yours! They have barely started to sprout!


  3. You are so darned creative and original with every day objects. Sadly my peonies are doing anything. They were my mom’s favorite flower and now they’re mine.


    1. Thank you so much, Joan! I always love reading your posts and seeing your images too. The peonies will bloom any day now. They certainly are beautiful. To be honest I was not really familiar with them before now but I really love them!


  4. You’ve made the rain so appealing with these beautiful images Eileen! Can’t wait to see your peonies when they open.
