Easter Egg Hunt & Decorated Egg Contest
Easter Saturday, April 20 at 9 am
|FROM WILMA: This morning I had lots of inside tasks but with birds singing and sun shining I was lured outside. In early spring I enjoy observing plants coming to life in my garden and around the property. Some of my favorites are a weeping green Japanese maple that is leafing out nicely; flowering tulips the grandchildren planted years ago; and one of my favorite natives, dog-toothed violets (Erythronium) that are budded.|
On nearby property is a peony my late mother planted no telling how many years ago. It is flourishing and I gave it a side dressing of compost and added a plant support stake. Peonies are hardy, long- lived perennials that make good cut flowers with some varieties having a heavenly fragrance. We have grown a great looking crop of them at our farm and they are available at the Garden Center.
