Garden journal entry


May 06, 2015. Some garden plants flower for months. That's wonderful, because their color is welcome the entire season. But you do start to take them for granted after a while. Not so with the plants whose flowers are so fleeting, you might miss them if you blink. I've found that to be the case with Japanese peony: they go from buds first opening to petal drop in a matter of a day or two, at least in my experience. My one plant, purchased a good number of years ago at the HPS/MAG members plant sale, had started to bloom two years ago, but all I caught until this year was the bulging bud stage and the aftermath. So I was excited to finally see the flowers this year. I never knew they had such a striking bunch of yellow stamens!
