i love my peonies, sadly they dont last very long especially this year with the heat they wilted away.
i love my cream puffs! not as good as MY cream puffs but schmidt's are pretty darn good!
i never updated about the baby birds, well they hatched in about 2 wks like wikipedia said and they sat around in the nest for another week before they started flapping their wings. they got so big that the parents didnt fit in the nest and only came around a few times a day to check on them. sadly we lost one of the babies its buried in our mulch bed.
