Spring Flowers in the Front Garden

As usual last fall I did not get the all the tulips that I purchased in the ground. This is very normal for me, I always buy more than I have places to plant them. After January 1, I ended up puting them in pots. I did not have any idea that the results would be like this.

After doing so well with them this year, I plan on repeating it next year, for one thing you can place the pots in the shade, as these are after they have opened. I am going to experiment with leaving some of them in the pots for the entire year, just to see what the results will be.

This Japanese peony is said to be over a hundred years old. Not sure how anyone knows for sure, but this was what we were told by the previous owners.

We planted the olive tree this year to take the place of an Italian cypress that did not look very good.
