My first peony of the season has appeared at Casa Debbio.
Each plant is at a different stage, some have buds and some are just poking their heads through the dirt.
A couple of the rhododendrons are in bloom.
Some lavender is flowering and some is beginning to grow new leaves.
The weeping cherry is growing leaves and the flowers are falling off.
We have pear blossoms.
…and the first wisteria flowers have appeared.
We have planted lots of geraniums, they are small, but they will grow.
…2 days later another peony has appeared.
Our ginestre is looking great.
We are going to Sicily for a couple of weeks and lovely Filippo will be taking care of the garden. I hate to leave when things are starting to look great, but it needs to be done.
There will be posts from Ischia, Calabria and lots of different places in Sicily. I hope you will all come along for the ride, it should be fun.
