It has been raining a lot lately but I’m not complaining since the plants need all the rains that they could get.

And I’m not a good predictor, I thought the red peony would bloom by now, perhaps it’s waiting for May.

I think these are ready to be planted in the garden.  The only concern that I have is that we still have some cold nights.

    • Hi Dallas, my sister use parsley and that’s what you saw in the video. It looks like dill but it’s actually parsley from my dad’s garden.

  1. Your photos feel very much like spring and very cheerful. The family reunion looks like fun too. And glad to see Max is doing much better.

    Btw, azaleas and rhododendron make spring look extra welcoming. The only thing bad about them is that it’s toxic to pets (dogs & cats). Unless of course you don’t have any such pets to worry about. 😉

    • Cambree, it’s nice to see my sisters again and kind of nice that they do all the cooking. 🙂

      Max is back to his normal self and his surgical wound is healing very well. I planted the rhododendron at my dad’s house a while back and didn’t expect it to get this big and I’m glad it’s looking very healthy. My dad doesn’t have dog nor cat, and hopefully the neighbor’s cat won’t eat it.
