I love my chaotic yard

Okay so to be honest everything about my life is pretty chaotic (and heck who's isn't these days??) but I really do love my yard, it is big and messy and I see something new all the time. I am afraid that we will be moved and outta here before the peonies have a chance to bloom (they tend to bloom late here in Montreal) and I have a ton all around. I even have some that came from my Grandmothers Cottage that was passed on to me, and I just adore them...

My step-mother Angel and I planted these in the lot beside my house outside my kitchen window a couple of Summers ago....before we bought the land :) it is always nice to see the purple amoungst all that green



I am a sucker for viburnum, one of absolute fav bushes....my MIL hacked this back last year not knowing what it was and I am so so happy to see that it still has some life in it :)




My very messy rock garden...lol....loads of peonies, lilies, and hydrangea in there....I am soooo going to miss this...even the well worn dog path running into the forest.




I know it is pretty much because we have the house up for sale, but my front yard has never been so colourful....lol.....love it to to much...



Butterfly Garden....not in bloom yet :( heck it is still pretty much in the starting stages...





So many things that I am going to miss.....but so many things I can start anew :)

cooool garden... hard for me to have one in NYC.. though my mom grew these wonderful light pink peonies in the backyard until a tenant chopped them all and instead started growing vegetables... boy was my mom mad...

I think I would throw a fit as well....argh.....you do not chop peonies....transplant them fine....but to chop them down...!!! unthinkable.
