Geoff and I moved to our present house in December 2013. Starting from scratch it's been a huge challenge but we love it.

A visitor knocked a stem off this peony about ten days ago. It was only in bud, but I brought it in and it had finally opened

I can hardly wait to see this in bloom. I've got one but it won't flower this year as I only planted it last year. The foliage is looking strong though 💕💕💕💛
