It is late on a lovely Monday in our garden, but it’s not too late to share some of the flowers that are catching the eye. Our peonies are featured this week, but I must lament that this has not been a good peony season for us. The number budding out is significantly reduced from previous years (weather?), and a heavy rain came at just the wrong time to knock what we did have earthward. A few have made it and are included in this arrangement.
All of these peonies have been handed down from my grandmother’s garden. Their identity has been long lost. The filler of the week is spirea ‘Anthony Waterer. A view from overhead:
The last of the spring blooms of bearded iris ‘Clarence’ makes its way one more time into a vase this week. It is nice to have three blooms open on one stalk at the same time. I am expecting it to return to bloom in late summer and will, of course, share it again.
Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others have put in their vases this week.
