Never a Dull Moment in the Garden!

Lots of blooming going on out front in our garden! Above is a peony which we transplanted last year from under a shrub. So we replanted it at the correct depth because it bloomed! Sorry I don't remember the name of the peony. To the right is a red poppy. Looks like red paper. It is beautiful, but very fragile and if we get a lot of rain, it will be finished blooming quickly. The big picture is the jungle that is the front yard. We have to clear out the weeds, but we leave a few for the insects. We have new baby sparrows living in the ivy on the front of the house. It gets quite noisy at times! Never a dull moment!

We are actually getting plants planted rather than looking at them in the pots and thinking where the heck is that going! LOL! You are a brave woman taking care of those kiddos! Your life is so different from mine that I enjoy living it through your blog! Thanks as always for your comments! A hug back to you.
