2013 American Peony Society Convention at
Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania

I know it's still cold outside. It's even cold here. We had quite a bit of ice last night (but it's all melted now). So it's definitely not time for spring, but it is a good time to start making plans to join us at the 2013 American Peony Society Show & Convention. I just made my travel arrangements today, and I am really excited. This year's convention is being held at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania (which is pretty close to Philadelphia - so you might be able to score a decent priced non-stop airline ticket like I did!). Not only is the convention being held "Longwood Gardens - the world's premier horticultural showcase", but there's also an optional tour on Sunday of Winterthur - "the premier museum of American decorative arts" along with a "60-acre naturalistic garden." I've been wanting to go there for a few years now. I love magnolia trees too, and I've heard they have a nice collection of these as well. Although I'm sure I'll miss the magnolia bloom season, I'm hoping to see the peony bloom season this year! :)
