Wanting Color....

My flower gardens have no color at the moment. I haven't planted any annuals yet and the bulbs seem to rising to the occasion a little late this year. They should be open by Mother's Day, which will be nice. If they took any longer than that I'd be getting worried about them.
I think I may treat myself to these garden additions this weekend. I have one rhododendron, but she doesn't seem very happy in the spot I've given her. We used to have a peony, but it lost it's life in a battle with yard work. I must get a replacement. They're too beautiful not to have around. My only complaint is the ants hiding deep in the petals - not exactly what you want to put in a vase and bring into your home!
