In the mood for pretty

 I am in the mood to see beauty, as in flowers!  
Nothing like a midwinter pick-me-up.

For your enjoyment from the greenhouse...

to what awaits us in the spring...
(Do you know what this flower is?)

to the simple, gorgeous pansy...

to the fantastic scents that we look forward to!

Don't you just love this bulb tree? Clever!

  1. Hi Ann, Is it a single Peony? I would love to see the bulb tree in bloom. Looks like they are all starting to sprout. I see tulips, crocus, hyacinth and daffodils. What a show that will be!

  2. Very pretty indeed. A great little pick me up! Thanks.

  3. Almost, Gina!
    It is actually a tree peony. The plant grows like a tree with a woody stem and is an incredible bloomer after getting established (2-3 years). I mean the blooms are 8-12 inches each! Truly a spectacular flower with amazing colors. I don't understand why it isn't used more in the landscape.

  4. Hi Ann
