A couple of years ago I and my family decided to leave the busy city life and move to the suburbs for a slower lifestyle that’s much more conducive for raising kids. My husband Greg and I agreed to purchase a bigger lot so we can have our home and at the same time maintain a garden since it has always been my dream to have one.
These are my magenta peonies. Magenta is actually my favourite among the rest. It’s sweet and everytime I look at them, they seem to emit energy to me. It is perhaps because the colour is so vibrant and joyful. My youngest Ella love magenta and yellow peonies. If you ask her why she likes magenta peonies, she would always answer, “Because it’s my mum’s favourite peonies in the whole world!
I am happy with the community we are now a part of and it has always been refreshing especially when I think of how we struggled in the city with work and the kids. A little later after the move, my garden is a dream come true.
This was taken last Sunday because Ella insisted on it. Don’t you just love the glow this picture has?
I remember my first walk in customer in the early summer of 2013. Her name was Beth and she happens to be visiting a neighbor. She was so attracted with my pink peonies and she was so persistent of paying for a bunch of them. The day after that, I bought various colours of peonies. Yes! It all started with that first sale and peonies. That was how my garden became a business, a business which I happen to enjoy, it isn’t work at all. Now, I have lots of peonies, complete with all colour varieties.
If my Grandma Louise is still alive, she would have been very happy with my garden. She was my influence when it comes to gardening. I always look forward to summers where I get to spend my vacation with her. I used to help her maintain her garden every morning.
So that’s it! I love gardening, it’s a passion. Hopefully with this blog, I can learn more from other garden lovers at the same time share what I know.
