There is nothing more enjoyable with the coming of spring to walk your garden, with coffee cup in hand and discover what is greeting you from the garden. This weeks walks produced some real joys, but one especially was remarkable. My Tree Peony was in bloom and like never before. It is about 5 years old and has been a very stubborn "child". It has never produced more than 3 blooms. As I got up closer, I counted 10 buds. One had already burst measuring 7 inches!
There were a couple more ready to greet the world with many
We have had a few colder evenings this week and I was concerned
about a frost nip to these paper thin petals, but they have all
survived quite well.
It is chilly here in the Midwest and I was worried about the longivity
of these blooms with the cold weather we are having (and should have
had in March) Crazy!!! But they seem to be enduring the 'snap'
This mornings walk found every bud bursting with joy!
We see this from our breakfast window and it isn't hard
to look at first thing. . . . . and that is for sure!!
Enjoy your Spring day where ever you may be. . . . today
it is a sweatshirt kind of day in the Midwest. A great day
for gardening and for pulling the unwelcomed garden 'guests'
from the soil.
