For Mom

In Massachusetts this weekend to visit my seedlings and start planting in my garden.  Unfortunately, the sweet peas aren't doing as well as expected, but I decided to give them until Memorial Day before I surrender and dig up the bed.  Also went shopping for clematis today to pair with my scabiosas.  It was so tempting to keep buying, but limited my purchases to three plants.

And, of course, Pete and I spent some time with the folks.  Won't be seeing my mom next weekend for Mother's Day but I wanted to do something special for her.  Mom's favorite color is purple and she loves peonies (yes, the peony theme continues).

lilacs, fritillaria, peonies, calla lilies, sweet peas and lady's mantle 
forgot to lower the ISO settings and photo's graininess is a reminder that I need a new camera
I added some salvia from our yard to this one -- mom's idea
can't wait for the peonies to fully open
