I miss…

…having a garden.  The smell of these peonies, bought at the local farmer’s market, are just divine. 

The goal this year is to get our wild lawn under control (it was seeded rather than sodded, so lots and lots of clover, some crazy creeping vine, jacob’s ladder, and thistles), and we need to plant some trees.  Next year, a veggie garden in the back, and a flower garden in the front.   I’m going to enjoy designing our gardens, but, I’m not going to enjoy the back breaking labour it is going to require.

Who am I kidding – Matt’s going to do the digging – I’m not 🙂

  1. I used to tend to the flower gardens around here . . . before Xander! I really need to get out there and trim some stuff, or else it will be survival of the fittest!

  2. i can almost smell that peony. it’s lovely. i’m missing my old garden too. we did get to plant a few vegetables at our new place, and it was nice to have a little helper this year 🙂

  3. I (heart) peonies. We have some in our back yard. The only bad thing is that you need to stake them because they are so darn heavy. Also, bringing them into the house you have to worry about little bugs on them. OK, I make it sound so negative but I love peonies!!
