Peonies – The Hieroglyphics of Angels

Baskets of Peonies from the Promise Gardens display their beauty in color and aroma that makes the heart smile.  This season they were exceptional and every room was filled with vases and baskets of them.  As they have completed their blooms for this season, we await the full bloom of the English Rose Garden which are so beautiful and we call our “baby peonies” in their petals, softness and glory.  They, as the poet says “speak” in “hieroglyphics of angels” . . .

“Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words.
They are the hieroglyphics of angels,
loved by all men for the beauty of their character,
though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.”
~Lydia M. Child

Heart Happy Yellow Peonies

The Promise Garden is lighting up every day with flowering peonies and nothing makes our hearts happier than seeing this beautiful “smiling-at-us” yellow peony in full bloom.  We call the yellow peony our “Happy Peony” because every time one blooms we burst out with joy and a huge smile.  You can see why we love them so much.  -Happy Gardening!

Loveliness at Promise Gardens


Loveliness is everywhere you just have to look around you in God’s creation we see beauty, love, hope and eternity. In our Promise Gardens it is filled with life, color, aroma, art and life from birth to death, creation at its best and worst. How blessed are we to be able to create, sow, seed, grow and tend the generous supply of creation our God’s has given us. It is WHY we love the creation in all of its splendor and have just a little of it in our own gardens. -JacyJoypals

A White Rose

THE red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

John Boyle O’Reilly. 1844–1890

A Very Chic Summer Porch

It’s that time again and one of our favorite summer joys of putting together this year’s summer porch, its decor, pots and arbors of flowers and color-themed that becomes a favorite spot for entertaining.  For 2016, we continued the white, aqua, teal and lime green theme.  This year we added new clematis, coleus, creeping jenny filled pots, dahlia and more.  A new aqua-cream chevron rug, aqua umbrella, aqua-lime placemats and colored pots finish off the design for 2016.  The storyboard gives you a hint of the glory we enjoy every day from every view.  Take advantage of the beauty we have and design a porch that reflects your love of creation in color and design and take it a step further and photograph it to enjoy prints in your home all year-long.
