It's beginning to feel a lot like spring... :)
Well, maybe not exactly. The temps here in NE PA are unseasonably cooler. But that's ok. Our spring flowers are lasting longer, along with the lilacs. I'm hoping to be able to collect up a few blossoms here soon and take some new pics. I can't wait to fill every room in the house with lilacs. My red peony is actually coming up nice and strong this year. My dear hubby transplanted it last fall to a new location, and it apparently likes it. I'm hoping for some blossoms this year. I'm so excited. Hubs and I went to one of the nurseries in New York (one of his faves)... and I picked up two fennel plants and an asparagus (sp?). He got a multi-colored butterfly shrub and something else (I don't recall). Also, some morning glory seeds he just planted this morning. When we go to the nurseries, he's like a kid in a candy store. He's too funny. We are planning to plant some of our perennial veggies right in with the perennial flowers. This is how they "cottage" garden in Ireland. I think it to be very sweet and quaint. Here in the Americas, we tend to gather everything together by type. Anyhow, I am looking forward to a little bit warmer weather, but not too hot.
Hope this finds everyone content and well. Bloom where you are planted! :)
Hugs all around,
