peony watch 2016


Not yet.

We had a long and cold Spring. The past couple of days are the first to see temperatures rise into the high 80s. Two weeks ago that didn’t stop me from starting peony watch, after another week of growth they’re closer, but it will still be a while.

The dandelions are excited for the warmer weather, as am I.


Bleeding hearts always surprise me.


Dogwood blossoms offer simple beauty and implore me to pull out the watercolours and paint. I plan to make some time over this long weekend.


What do you anticipate most in your garden each year?
