Making her presence known....

Pin It

I've been waiting for weeks for the peonies to bloom.  I even cut a fat bud and brought it inside, hoping it would bloom (even though I know peonies won't open up once cut if they haven't started opening already).  I even peeled open a bud to try to see what color it might bloom(I think it is a white).

Surprise of all surprise today...a peony bloomed.  A tree peony.  I kinda knew tree peonies existed. I had never really noticed one.

This girl made me take notice today.


 I might be tempted to try layering this lady because 4 or 5 blooms a season is just not quite enough.   
Have you had any surprises in your yard yet this spring?

AH! I have a whole row of peonies waiting to open! I am stalking them everyday. I think I have at-least another week or two before mine even think about blooming. I even have a tree peony in the back yard too. Although it only gives me one bloom a season. It is so cool because each year you never know which stem the bloom will come from.

I am also so excited, i found a great deal on a big girl camera! I will actually be able to focus my own pictures. No more point and shoot, wohoo!

Gorgeous! We're so far behind here in the garden - too much rain and not enough sunshine! I can't wait for my peonies...
