    Japanese Tree Peony in Bloom

    So I managed to overwinter my tree peony again, and this year it will have three blooms. Hurrah! I planted it in 2007 and it only bloomed one other time for me, in 2009. It smells delicious. Did I mention the blooms are enormous?

    Pot. Elaine Taylor ‘Krull-Smith’ FCC/AOS

    I won this in the 2011 Slippertalk Auction, donation from John M. **I tweaked this a bit in Photoshop to try and get the color right. Set my exposure with a gray card first, shot in RAW, then tweaked. On my monitor looks pretty close...

    The Current Bane of My Gardening Existence...

    My husband kept chasing this guy out of our backyard into the alley because my yard is a virtual salad bar buffet. We discovered this morning that the critter actually digs his way back in under the gate. He's so cute, but geez...he eats everything including the new growth on my roses... :(...

    This catt has some pretty suspicious looking dark circles; I'm concerned it's a virus? I know I need to test it for sure, just wondered what you think...
