I’ve been a busy little bee.
Lots of sewing this weekend although I don’t have any pictures to show…it’s hard to get pictures of my latest projects since I don’t have a photographer and I need to model. In the meantime, I’ll distract you with some flowers.
Those of you who’ve kept up with my blog may know that I have a thing or two for peonies. I think they’re the most incredible flowers. Although I come from a long line of farmers, neither of my parents have a green thumb. They live in an amazingly lush green belt area but they’ve really let their yard run amok. I want so badly to spruce things up but thus far, I’ve been limiting myself to research. I still have oodles to learn but this is prime planting season people. I really want to get cracking, otherwise I’ll have to wait until next summer! Knowing that peony blooms can be short lived, I decided to trek up to the A&D Nursery in Snohomish to check out some peony options. The variety of colors and blooms was a bit overwhelming.
There are so many varieties I had a terrible time deciding. Exercising a little restraint, I only walked away with two plants to start, an avalanche and a red charm. I could’ve easily walked away with a dozen but I figured I should make sure I can keep one or two alive first. So there you have it. My landscaping revolution, one small potted flower at a time.
