Kath, which peonies are you getting and from where? What are especially fragrant lilacs? I am getting a Charles Joly from Hortico. What’s with the colchicums? I admit I am not aware of their charms.
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
