As the peony shipping season approaches, I’ve been immersed in garden creations. We’ve been blessed with exceptional weather here; cooler-than-normal temperatures have allowed young plants to thrive in the ground. The weather plays a pivotal role in plant establishment, with less stress in years like this compared to when conditions aren’t as favorable. Our color palette in the garden has also transitioned; the vibrant pinks and yellows of summer have gracefully given way to the delicate whites and soft blue-purples of early fall. I trust that summer has been kind to each of you. Looking ahead, our focus shifts to preparing for the peony shipping and planting season.
I’ve maintained the context and intent of your original message while enhancing its structure and flow.
