A Few Blooms

This is my favorite time of year for flowers. I love Peonies and Iris. The best thing about them for my yard is that they are deer proof!

This Iris is a pass-along from my mom. I am 100% sure that it was passed-along to her as well, probably from her sister. Sharing plants is the best.

My Tree Peony really put on a show this week. Mama gave this plant to me for my birthday one year. Regular Peonies will be blooming here in the next week or so.

I am hoping to do a lot of garden chores this weekend. Weeding and mulching are #1 on my list. I mowed the yard last night, so that chore has a big check beside it on the list. Hurray! I also planted some Parsley and Cilantro in pots on my deck. I have an herb garden, but I’ve found that it is much handier to have the plants on the deck where I can quickly snip off what I need while I’m cooking. My neighbor gave me five Sun Gold tomatoes last night, so they will get planted, too. So many chores, so little time!

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Oh, I LOVE peonies! Yours are beautiful!!! I wanted one so badly last year, but we couldn’t find one–to late in the season, I think. 🙂

  2. As much as we wanted Spring to come, we have a lot of work ahead of us! Happy you have a head start on yours!

    And I just bought my first peony plants last week! I didn’t know they were deer proof. Yay! Maybe they’ll actually live here!
