The amount I had to cut was heartbreaking.
I can't begin to tell you how my kitchen smells. The look, feel, smell and composition is outstanding. Yes they fall apart very easily and they topple to the ground the minute rain hits them, and yes I wish they could last longer, but taking all this into consideration, the Peony remains to be my favorite flower. I found a wonderful company that carries so many varieties. It's called Peony envy. www.peonysenvy.com I recently purchased a few and I am so happy to report that they arrived quickly and in perfect condition and are already in the ground and budding with flowers that should be opening in the next day or two.
A few other suprises as I walked through my garden.
One of my late blooming Lilac variety bushes was in full bloom.
And my beloved Wisteria.
It's so wonderful to come home to so many surprises in my garden.
