Spring is Here!

Today spring has arrived.  Here the snow is still a foot deep.  The snow is a warm blanket.

I have planned a new garden.  I have been all over the internet to find some more plants, and have decided to share some of the peonies I have with everyone.  You can find the peonies that are available at  The collection is growing. 

As the snow melts it is important to monitor the newly planted roots.  If you covered the roots with straw, be sure to move the straw away from the buds as they start to emerge from the ground.

I spend my nights thinking about peonies and how they will look this spring.  I am excited to see the tree peonies peaking out of the snow.  It will not be long before it is time to weed.

This summer I am planning to visit some new gardens and look at the peonies for more ideas and to go to the Oshawa Peony Festival.

This should be a wonderful year.
