So, I am enjoying the cut peonies from my garden.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed that I have been posting several flower pics.
They just make my heart sing.
Last week I visited a local garden centre and chose 32 new plants to liven up my yard. The peonies above are one of the choices I made. These flowers have come from a greenhouse and therefore are ahead of the blooms that are currently in my garden. Typically my peonies do not bloom until the beginning of July, so I am going to enjoy these ones for now.
Then, last weekend, we met some friends for lunch at a Saskatoon Berry Farm. We had a lovely visit and a fantastic meal, including saskatoon pie with ice cream! But the entire place is a wonder to experience. There are all sorts of trees and flowers to purchase. Hubby and I are trying to populate our yard this year, so we made a few choices in trees and have to go back to pick them up. This lilac tree was one that is part of their natural surrounds, but I love me some purple lilacs.
Back a few years, I planted this bleeding heart bush beside the front steps leading to my house. Every year it gets bigger and bigger. Last year I split it and created a new bush on the other side of my steps and that one is taking off this year too. Bleeding hearts remind me of my grandmother, so every spring, these lovely flowers make me smile.
Before all of the plants started blooming in my yard, I stopped at the display in my local grocery store and chose this bouquet. Roses and lilies. Just breathtaking. Since this photo, the other lilies have bloomed and just make this little display so exotic.
I hope your spring is full of flowers too!
