More of Spring at my Farm

I received so many wonderful comments when I posted 'Springtime at my Farm' last week.  It really has been a spectacular spring and we certainly have received sufficient rain.  However, I am concerned about how early everything seems to be blooming this year.  The flora became quite confused when temperatures reached 90-degrees F last March.  That hot spell lasted a few days and really disrupted bloom schedules.  Each spring in late May, I host, what I call, my Peony Party.  At that time, the peony bed is usually in glorious bloom.  This year may be problematic, as the peonies are bursting with energy already.  I hope that I don't have to give my party a different name.  Take a look and see what I mean.
