Today is Sunday and it is supposed to be a day of rest and you are not suppose to work. Well, define Work? Does that mean playing in the garden is work? Or planting flowers, is considered working as well? I really don’t think so. Working a job is 8-5 or 9-5, 5 days a week so I guess that means we can indeed work in the garden, plant plants and all those glorious spring chores.
On Saturday, I planted some Peonies and Siberian Iris and I am hoping they do ok. They are not planted directly in the sunlight where they would get sun all day but the package did say part sun and part shade. Peonies are my favorite flower but I don’t really like the ants but without the ants though the flower would not open up. So before I bring them in the house I beat them to death to make sure I have all the little critters off.
The Siberian Iris is similar to a peony but not as big of bloom. I am anxious for the flowers to pop up. My tulips and daffodils tripled in size this year so I will have to move some of those. That’s what I like about bulbs because they multiply all by themselves and you don’t have to buy new ones each year.
Well, until tomorrow think Farmers Market and Earth Day is coming up on Wednesday. Plan to celebrate and plant something,
