Little League Weekend

I’ll be soaking up the rays and enjoying a whole lot of baseball this weekend.  Thrilling competitions with all the drama of major league baseball.

I realize that compared to the Majors, this is Little League…but boys this age are hardly “little” any more and the games seem just as important.

Admission is free, the competition intense, and the fans are great!  I love baseball!

I thought Spring would never arrive this year,  but now that it’s here–it is glorious!

The prize would go to this coral peony.  I planted it last year, and didn’t know what to expect.  The plant is still small, with only two blooms…

In the sunlight, the petals are watermelon-colored.  (Perhaps that’s why the bees like it, too!)

The blue-ribbon in the garden this week goes to: Paeonia Coral Charm!
