A Passion for Peonies

Although all my grandparents were avid gardeners I don't remember anyone ever growing peonies when I was a kid in Australia. They do seem to be more of a cold climate flower. So it wasn't until I moved to Canada that I was introduced to these gorgeous blooms for the first time. It was...

They call her a dreamer

What Stops You?

What stops you from living your dreams? Someone shared a great video with me today and it gave me pause to consider all the ways in which I don't pursue my dreams. And then I began to wonder why it is that so few people seem to follow their dreams. In the final analysis isn't...
