Spring Contest: First Blooms

The first peonies bloomed in our "1792 Garden!"

Congratulations to Sherry Kiely, Bob Brodeur, Roy Hill, Gary Hammer, and Judy Payne.  All five guessed the date when at least half of the peony buds bloomed. The date: June 6!

Thanks to all who took a guess! Winners will receive a bundle of Almanac products including our new All-Seasons Garden Guide.

See our Garden Web Cam to learn more about this parlor garden which features flowers and herbs beloved by gardeners more than 200 years ago—when The Old Farmer's Almanac was first published.
