|Dan and I went up to the Des Moines Flower and Garden show yesterday, 3-19-10. Hollingsworth Peony was there and I picked up four new peony roots!!! Yay!! I realize they have been in cold storage all winter but you cannot tell that they weren't just dug yesterday they are so nice!! I got Miss America, a white semi-double; Roy Pherson's Best Yellow, a yellow single; Philomele, a pink anemone; and Mackinac Grand, a deep red semi-double with yellow center. I'm as happy as a little clam!! As usual, the guys from Hollingsworth are wonderful! Love their peonies!! Yay!!|

|Oh, you are so lucky. They didn't come to our garden show in Wichita this year. Hopefully, I'll see them at the Heartland Peony Sale this fall. |
Don't you just love garden shows when it is cold and dreary outside? Come on, spring!
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

|Yes, I prefer to go to garden shows when I can't be out working in my gardens. It makes me feel so much less guilty about stealing time away. LOL|

|You should be delighted with Mackinac Grand once it becomes established. One of those peonies you just say "Oh" about. It does like a fair amount of fertilizer.|

|Thanks Alana, I'll keep that in mind about Makinac Grand. It is a gorgeous peony. But, as you know, I've never met a peony I didn't like... LOL|

|You do have a very knowledgeable team. I need to get more of my peony buddies to road trip down sometime... They need to see your fields in full bloom. |

|I most cerainly would love to make the trip next year. It comes at the perfect time of year too....when I am desperate for digging and am in search of spring. Though it may find me broke as the outcome . Lol.|
