For the garden is the stage on which the gardener exults and agonizes out every crest and chasm of the heart.

Tree Peonies

I have five or six Tree Peonies - "tree" meaning the base stems are woody, not herbaceous like our familiar old-fashioned peonies. They bloom earlier and have enormous silky flowers. They also add yellow to the peony color pallet. I have one yellow one, but it has not bloomed yet. It takes a few years. Now that I think about it I suppose some of my larger bushes must be at least twenty years old.





These sweet babies are BIG!

I potted up the annuals yesterday.

Take care, live well while you are able - Gunnar
