I enjoy this time of year. Everything is growing like gangbusters and the grass hasn't turned beige yet. We've had some hot days in the mid 80's though and I have to think about watering schedules.The sudden heat can be hard on newly blooming flowers.
The herbaceous peonies I planted last year are blooming for the first time. All of them are gorgeous. I'm quite happy with how much they have grown and how healthy they look. I can only say good things about them being from Adleman's.
