Good evening all! What a lovely day it's been, and I even got out into the garden this afternoon! Was cutting back some large grasses that had got out of hand and they've shredded my hands and arms to bits! However, I did find that my #peony 'Sarah Bernhardt' was beginning to shoot away! Haven't had any flowers yet, but this is her third year so I've got my fingers crossed! 😀

Crikey! She’s up early! Mine doesn’t even think about waking up for another month yet! Reckon you’ll get a bloom this year!

@happycanuck - Isn't it? I'm now eagerly awaiting the arrival of two other varieties I planted as bare root plants at the same time! 😀

@happycanuck - I definitely will! I was a bit worried about the planting depth but I seem to have at least got this one right! Good luck with yours! 😀

I was ferreting around looking for one of my tree peonies which I moved last year last weekend and was also delighted to see signs of life 🎉Have a good day Ian
