The Story of "Peony"

Have you seen the movie Barbie Fairytopia? If you haven't you should. It is a sweet magical little movie and the flower fairies are so beautiful! Elina, who is played by Barbie, is a flower fairy and she lives in a beautiful magical flower named Peony. Peony plays a soothing lullaby when Elina and her pet, Bibble, are ready for bed, and offers them a wake-up song in the morning.

Elina the flower fairy and Bibble

When Elina approaches Peony opens a petal up for Elina and Bibble to enter.

When we moved 3 years ago, my daughter Mallory and I planted a Peony because we loved Fairytopia and how Elina lived in a Peony. We had collected all the Barbie movies and the Fairytopia ones are our favorites (well, mine at least)! After 3 years our Peony is finally going to bloom. This is a picture of how she looks today. When Mallory and Ezie came home from school they came running in the house so excited and yelling, "Mom, Peony bloomed, Mom she bloomed!" I couldn't believe how excited they both were to see Peony bloom. It's like she has become a member of the family or something. Everyone calls her by the name Peony. Not the Peony plant, or anything, just Peony. I'll have to admit, although she didn't completely bloom, it is the beginning of a beautiful, well worth waiting for, bloom!

So here she is ....


This is my Rosemary Plant. I LOVE the smell and the taste of Rosemary!!

This is my oregano plant

and this is my sage plant

None of the rest of my plants have bloomed yet. My gardening space is not very big but I still love the results. Someday, I'll have a big yard where I can plant tons of flowers..........someday....
