Spring garden tour on a rainy day

I love gardening! Although I am definitely not an expert, it’s something that I love to do. I really love perennials. In the past, I would plant a lot of annuals because wherever we have lived, there has always been an area for it. This is our first spring in our new home and there isn’t a place at the moment for annuals. But that’s okay! Perennials are awesome and it’s so fun seeing them return every year.

Here is a peony that I bought at Costco (of all places), almost ready to bloom:

Last fall, I planted 4 peony plants. This spring, I planted two more. I might not become a crazy cat lady, but I wouldn’t mind being the crazy peony lady, haha. Come to think of it, I actually wouldn’t mind having a bunch of cats either, in the future.

I love working hard in the garden. I love seeing beautiful flowers and I LOVE having fresh fruit for making jam at the end of the season! Making jam and having it all year is the best, in my humble opinion. Next year I hope to have time to have a vegetable garden. I love having fresh veggies for grilling and for salads all summer. I am still planning on planting some lettuce but I don’t have any other veggies planned this year. Happy gardening!
