oh SpringSpringSpringSpringSpring! I am itching to plant my tomato and pepper starts in the ground and tuck in some bean and squash seeds. among others. there are all shades of green out there right now, and loads of buds ready to burst open with flowers. when we moved in five and a half years ago we transplanted some very sad looking peonies from the shady front yard to a space in the backyard along the garage wall. I think this is the year they are finally going to bloom and I am so pleased. there's just something about a peony, I think.
