Peonies! After a week in Arcata, CA at home office, I popped up to St. Paul, OR to check in with Patti, who grows our amazing Peonies.  Patti’s farm is family run, and is literally, in her backyard, and I love to visit.  Patti is always so welcoming, and the farm is always buzzing with friends and family.  Last Saturday I was greeted by her sweet Granddaughter, who was spending the day running around the farm, along with the family dogs. Molly, the chocolate lab likes to bring gifts …last time it was a mouse!     As many of you know, the Pacific Northwest has had extreme temperatures this past winter, causing a slow start for Peonies. We usually have them in time for Mother’s Day, so we are hoping for a few days of warm weather and sunshine so that is possible again this year.    Fingers crossed our Peony season will start on May 10th, we will keep you posted by email and social media posts.  -Marcy
