It’s mid November and the reality of the end of the garden season is settling in. But today I’m looking forward to a chilly but sunny day in the garden. I will be planting the last of my fall bulbs and peony roots. I’m excited about some of the peonies I’ll be planting today. James Mann, a nice clear pink with beautiful dark red flecks, Grace Batson, a cool dusty pink, a vintage theme comes to mind, Brands Magnificent, dark rose with hints of purple, and Inspector Laverne, a clear deep crimson.
The anticipation of seeing these babies bloom next June will have me out checking on them all winter long!
One thought on “You can take the Gardener out of the Garden but you can’t take the Garden out of the Gardener!”
I have ‘Inspecteur Lavergne’, and it is one of my favourites. This winter I discovered intersectional peonies, which I am doubly excited about!
