I came across a brilliant idea hosted by Sweet Bean Gardening. Her new meme is about the gardeners sense of anticipation.
Here are the guidelines:
♥ Post a photo of something in your garden you are looking forward to in the next month. It could be a plant you’re hoping to see bloom, a project you’re hoping to do, anything you are hopeful to see/do in your gardens.
♥ Next month (on the 5th), come back and show us: the results of what you were hoping for, and what you are looking forward to for the next month.
Okay, I know today is the 8th and I should have posted this on the 5th but I have only just found it and will remember to return on 5 April. Below is my contribution. One of the excitements of walking around my garden at the end of Winter and just before Spring is finding little red peony stems poking through the soil, like lipsticks. Within a couple of weeks the stems have already reach a good height.
I can’t remember what it is called, it took 4 years to flower and last year it finally flowered, – only a couple of flowers but I just love it and like every peony it will get better every year. Definitely well worth the anticipation, don’t you agree?
