PEONYS GALORE!

Morning lovelies,

So since spring is upon us and summer is knocking at our door, I have been trying to spruce up my flower beds with gorgeous flowers. 

Some of my favorite flowers are peonys, ranunculus, and climbing roses. 

About a month ago I planted six different climbing roses all over my property. They are doing well and already are covered with buds. I cannot wait until they bloom! Pictures soon to come!

Lately I have been having a hard time finding my favorite flower, the peony, especially for a decent price. I can find the baby plants/ or eyes as they're called but apparently they are hard to grow. Only about 50-70% of them actually come up. 

Luckily, I was walking through Home Depot today (looking for more climbing roses) and I found them! 12 bucks for a mature gallon plant. 

So of course I got six.

And I planted them all today.

I purchased two light pinks, two whites, one deep pink, and one purple. SCORE!

Peonys, Peonys, Peonys... Say that three times fast... Dirty!


Aren't they pretty y'all?



What are some of your favorite flowers or gardening tips?

PS. Notice anything new? I will be talking all about it tomorrow!
