Yesterday I planted Sweet Peas and built a trellis for the flowers to climb up. I absolutely love this flower, but it can be a challenge to grow because our cool weather can go from cool to hot very quickly.
I also noticed that the peonies are coming up. Some folks do not like them because of the ants that are attracted to them, but they have the most gorgeous flowers. I would love to have a huge arrangement of them in a vase. See photos below of the peonies coming up through the soil.
I also added a photo of a Mohawk Viburnum flower. Pretty soon the Viburnums will be covered with these. By mid May I should be planting vegetables in my raised beds.
