What a beautiful display my beloved heirloom peonies are putting on. Just a small root is what I brought with me out to the country when we arrived six years ago. What a blessing to that bush explode with blooms this spring. I will admit I do use a horse manure in the top soil each fall and they do get fertilized with 20-20-20 at least once a week in the early spring. I am excited to spend the afternoon out in the garden laying a new brick border engulfed by their sweet fragrance. I will keep you posted on my brick job upon completion.
My Boo this Friday morning was alert and ready to help me in the garden. One of his favorite places to 'roll' around is in the Catmit / Dianthus
corner of the back garden. I enjoy the color display that catnip combo is showing off this spring. It seems to be doing well this early in the season. Another one of Boo's favorite spots is the bird bath near the hosta shade garden. He seems to think it is his water bowl.
