Easter Weekend Gardening

IMG_8099IMG_8102

A and I split childcare duties this weekend so I could hack up the shrubbery. We have three giant lilacs behind our garage, and true to form for the house’s previous owners (avowed non-gardeners who hired landscapers), they look like they’ve been running rampant and free for at least a few years. I sawed and lopped and chopped until I recognized I was getting hack-happy, and took a break to pile branches. It was then that I noticed some new bulb growth. I have no idea what they were, but they kind of resemble endives, don’t they? Only pink, of course. But it’s possible that all bulb-things look endivey to the untrained, hack-happy eye. Texted the pics to my mom and she thought they were peonies or lilies. Any thoughts, Internet?

The garden box dirt is coming today. Super big day, everyone.

    1. Maybe mine are white or pale pink? Also (like, just as I was reading this comment) my mom sent me another text saying her peony buds look like this. I think you guys are right…
