hooray for fuchsia!

This year I started gardening in earnest (we moved in too late in the summer last year to really get anything going) and I've planted sweet peas, anemones, and peonies that will hopefully all look like the picture above. Sadly I don't think the peonies will bloom this year, but that is normal, right? The anemones have little buds on them now and the sweet peas I grew from seed so they are still quite tiny. I have very high hopes for my little garden.

so, glad you commented on my blog...yours is so lovely! i never knew i had so many kindred spirits until i starting reading other blogs. :-)

ps - my peonies took a year after being planted to bloom, but it was totally worth the wait! then the only difficult part was to decide if i should cut them to bring inside or leave them on the bush.
