Peonies

'Pink Hawaiian Coral'

After the sunny Sunday we have rain again. The temperature drop is quite high and we had to turn the heating on. There was even some snow in the mountain regions. The long-term weather forecast predict the rain for another six days. It is always so when the peonies are about to flower.

'Rubra Plena'

These three varieties are the first to flower. I staked them well and  it seems to work - the flowers stand firm up in spite of rain.


I really miss working in the garden- There is no weeds in the beds but the brick paths and edges need some tiding up. I bought some annuals on the flower show to fill up the gaps in the flower beds but still did not plant them because of the rain. 

'Rosea Plena'

I also gave up pruning the Dogwood because I discovered the blackbird nesting in. I have to wait until the little ones leave their home.

    1. Ma bilo gdje, to je prilično veliki grm i treba ga rezanjem držati pod kontrolom. Napikati ću grančice pa u jesen pošaljem zajedno s Hostama. Nisam zaboravila, samo je bilo strašno mokro da bilo što vadim i dijelim, Morati ću u jesen. Adresu imam...
