These beautiful trees are abundant in flowers and aroma and fill the house and gardens with luscious blooms and fragrant aroma. I am in awe of them as they brighten my Morning Room and smile as I now have eight lilac trees from the mother trees and soon will have a grove of them in my “Perfumed Land of Lilacs.” Stunning describes them best when brought indoors to photograph and enjoy.

October is here and the Promise Gardensis preparing for the fall foliage show, colors of fall and the beauty of the changing season. All around us there is beauty to behold, taste and enjoy. Watch for details of the upcoming fall foliage photo walks.
I am spellbound by the beauty of the blooming peonies, their fragrance and color and mood created. At last I can begin processing and posting the new designs here and at the Promise Gardensblog. Today is beautiful, gorgeous color, too windy for outdoor photography (30mph gusts) but the sunlight and radiance are lighting up the rooms so peonies are adding to the ambience to my delight. Each year I do “first vases” for the blogs so this is the first of the peonies for the morning table. The reflections on the glass were breathtaking.
