I do not consider myself a gardener.
As a matter of fact, I really don't enjoy it at all.
All that bending over to pull weeds, getting dirty
(not that I mind getting dirty, just not from working in the yard).
It seems like there is always something to pull, plant, cut or trim.
For me, the best part of having a garden is the the plant that takes the longest to grow and once it blooms those two short weeks in May,
doesn't last nearly long enough for me to enjoy.
My all-time favorite flower: the Peony.
I have about eight peony bushes and only have one that has bloomed
(another has one bud).
I love the yellow center.
These beauties make me OH so happy.
