Solstice and pretties

I hope you all had a fantastic midsummer.  I spent mine in the usual fashion.  I am hoping to plant the idea of a Midsummer party in the mind of one of the more talkative Villagers.  And they might know of someone who will let us use their field.  You can hope right?

The peonies in the garden here are stunning.  I am going to move them.  I know they dont flower for long but I love them and they dont have THORNS!  hooray.

And I bought this.  I know, I know, I probably wont keep it alive but there is nothing other than fig trees and grapevines that says holiday more to me than bougainvillea.

It just screams at me.  I love it.  I really do.

Love bougainvillea too, but ours keeps getting hit by the frost.

Do take advice before moving the Peonies. Bougainvillea is gorgeous, I hope it likes where you are.

Hi Dani, they are so pretty arent they. I will house them in the green house with the heater.

Toffeeapple, my friend will move them for me. I doubt I can keep it alive but I am going to try really hard.

Bourgainvillea - lovely, and very reminiscent of holidays, you're right. Best of luck with keeping it alive in our climate! :)

Hey Carroline, I will try my hardest to keep it alive
