The Peony Is One Of My Favorite Flowers

Remember do not cut the Tree Peony. Prune the magnificent tree peony. Watch the video below.

Please learn all about the tree Peony before you care for it these are simply my favorite besides the Itoh peony. 

What Are Itoh Peonies: Itoh Peony Information And Care In Gardens

Itohs can be deadheaded as needed throughout the spring and summer. In autumn, cut back Itoh peoniesto about 4-6 inches up from the soil level. Like herbaceous peoniesItoh peonies will come back in spring from the ground. In fall, you can also divide Itoh peonies just as you would divide herbaceouspeonies.Oct 31, 2016

 

Tree Peony – Learn to prune. Never cut to the bottom.

This is my tree peony age is 25 years old. Yes twenty-five years old!

Select Peony

Peonies can outlive people

Kept in optimal conditions, a peony plant can live to be over 100 years old.

Melody teaching via skype and Dropbox worldwide. Melody teaches the owner how to train virtually worldwide! Why? Donkeys are smart not stubborn. Training the owner to train the donkey saves donkeys lives from auction, sales and slaughter. We purchased our twenty acre farm in Sequim, WA with nothing on the land. Finally after everything is competed for the donkeys and horses we are going to build a home. Living in a 5th for two years now. Our home begins in 2017, thank you Jesus.

Wisteria “When To Prune”

Dear Friends Of The Donkey Whisperer Farm

If you have been following my blog since 2009 you know I am a serious gardener. Wisteria seems to take forever to mature and then it appears to be a big mess if we do not know how to manage it. One of the most important considerations before you plant this mysterious and elegant plant is to understand how to set this plant up for success. Some homes simply do not have enough space for the wisteria. I call this plant the fairy tale of gardens, the grace and elegance is beyond compare.

059 - Copy

  1. Make sure you have a strong arbor to support this beauty.
  2. Plant away from any structures, i.e., home etc. As this plant will seriously become invasive if you do not learn how and when to prune, manage the plant.
  3. Do not prune every year as you will have no flowers, just leaves.

We are working really hard to get our road, electricity, septic, well water lines, phone line, barn (sod removed), RV site setup, round pen and 80 x 120 outdoor arena installed on our new farm in Sequim, Washington.

We have 12″ of rain a year so an outdoor arena will work perfectly for us.  I am excited to announce that things are finally starting to move along. Building a house is stressful enough but building twenty acres with nothing on it is a huge amount of stress. We give all of our needs to Jesus and he provides the resources needed as we could never do any of this without Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior the projects and costs are just too great.

lavendarsequim

Our marriage is strong and we are working together on each and every project and we are enjoying the process.  One more gift GOD has given us, to never give up and keep our eye on the end result a final destination and home.  Ten acres of the this beautiful twenty acre farm will be used for growing Orchard hay. Low sugar hay, tested to keep our equine healthy and sell to equine owners needing low sugar hay.

IMG_4427

Our drive-way should be in by late next week and yes I will be planting some lavender around the round pen as we are living in Sequim, the lavendar capital of Washington state.  I will apply for my barn permit in the next week or so and then my MD barn is delivered to the site and installed in a week, kind of like a Lego kit, should have the barn completed by March or early April. We will be living on our new twenty acre farm by the end of April so lot’s of projects to get completed. Stay tuned for more details of how we take twenty acres with two pear trees, one apple tree, irrigation and transform it into an equestrian educational institute for donkeys, horses and mules.

If you are new to my blog I survived a semi-truck accident in 2010 leaving me with a permanent physical disability (three screws in my pelvis) neropothy pain and back spasms.  We were forced to move and change our life 100% and GOD is giving us double for our troubles. Trust GOD in Jesus Christ name during the darkest hours and he will provide a solution you could have never dreamed up.  GOD knows what is best for his children. Thank you Jesus!

Please support my new business, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC as I am a disabled woman business owner.  I need your help to be successful, please share my business with anyone you meet who needs help as I am very cost effective compared to sending equine off to a trainer. I coach, consult and train humans world-wide to train, care and provide optimum health for donkeys, mules and horses. Select Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC to see how virtual coaching works.  I sell ‘On Donkey Time art metal signs’ too so check us out. Each metal sign can hang or stand inside or outside and is hand made by a local artist in Kingston, WA. These signs are perfect for the donkey lover in your life.  These signs are replica’s of our mini Rocket Man sitting down and can even be given as a gift for political reasons. Democrats are the donkey 🙂

How can I order my On Donkey Time Metal Sign?

Select Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC store as we have two sizes and I can take any credit card world-wide.
