What’s blooming?

.

Peonies!

.

.

For a dramatic pop of color you can’t beat them.

.

.

And the scent? Ooh la la.

.

.

I fill our home with vases every summer and it’s positively glorious.

.

.

If you’ve never planted one, they can be a little tricky to get started… but so worth the effort.

In other garden news…

My rose is starting to put on a show.

.

.

The blooms almost look painted.

.

.

And after a few teaspoons of fertilizer and a good soaking with the hose?

.

.

More blossoms than I can count.

.

.

Yes, it’s a beautiful time of year.

  1. Looks like Minnesota is a good month ahead of you. My peonies looked like that early-mid June. Now they’re just green and boring. I split one of my peonies after it flowered and planted the two parts in new spots. Boy do they look bad. They look dead. I have high hopes that they are just holding a grudge (peonies do that, I find) and will be back with me next year.

  2. Peonies are my MOST favorite! I hardly ever see them here in the stores and goodness knows, I’ll never see them in a garden here. TOO Damn hot. Yours are lovely…all your bloomers are lovely.
