When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Paeonia lactiflora 'Jan van Leeuwen'

My peonies are all over the place. One had new shoots in mid-November and I spotted another peony with new growth this morning.

It's very exciting! I went out in the garden just to give one shrub a tidy up and ended up spending a couple of hours tidying up and revealing all sorts of signs of new growth. ☺

It’s a wonderful time of year. So much anticipation. I read somewhere that anticipating happiness is more powerful than the actual happy event 🧐🤓 I can believe it 😊😊😊 @ublaszko

Anticipation is a big part of the whole experience of enjoying things. I love those mild winter days when you feel like you can take your time and potter around and there are no real 'jobs' to do in the garden. 😍😍

It truly is Urszula. It’s an important lesson. Me too - though I still have ‘jobs’ to do but there’s no rush as time passes very slowly in the garden in winter. Love it! 😍😍 @ublaszko

I did a bit of tidying on New Year’s Day which I hadn’t planned on doing. Made me realise how much I miss gardening and how much I have to do. Felt Unwell last two days so haven’t managed to get out

Hope by Saturday my head will have stopped spinning. Been feeling dizzy but it’s better today than yesterday so that’s positive

This #peony has been flowering for about a week. It's looking a bit shy due to the heavy rain we have been having...

It would be nice if it would stop raining before it has finished flowering as, for once 🙈 it's well supported & it might cheer up 😊 @pelly
