You can almost hear the peonies shooting

Thousands of potted peonies are now shooting up, sending out their delicate looking red shoots. Now’s the time to give them a little water – too much and they won’t root well, too little and the new leaves will dry out the roots. I love this time of year!

But I can’t wait until they look like this in a few months!
