The Peonies Are In Bloom Again. Happy Days!
|Peony Season kicked off at Cafe Drake HRV this year with gifts from Kristin's garden.|
|K. also brought us a sample of this unusual plum wine iris.|
|And a sweet bird of summer.|
|The largest and most prolific of the peony bushes, this beauty was nursed back to health after wet rot and mildew during 2013's drenching summer.|
|Flowering vines not only add baroque interest to the front porch, they also make lovely small single specimen arrangements.|
|The darkest of the peonies grow admirably on the northern exposure of the garden.|
