Peony and Iris on Parade

Just about the time the last tulip drops its pretty petals in a graceful exit from the yearly garden show, iris and peonies are beginning to unfurl their lovely petals. I love to see my neighbors stopping to admire the gorgeous blossoms. This year has been a spectacular year for these little beauties to parade their lovely petals for the world to see.

I wish the parade was longer. Alas, one by one, the peonies are dropping their lovely petals and the iris are calling it quits too.

Well, there’s my Six on Saturday, where fellow gardeners around the world share six photos of what’s going on in their own little botanical spaces. You can take the tour too by visiting The Propogator’s blog here. We’d love to see YOUR gardening photos too.

    1. Thanks, Helen. As much as I love gardens that feature color families which lend the garden a certain rhythm and cadence, I really lean more toward planting a riot of color…a bit willy-nilly.

  1. The first peony – white & yellow – looks like a water lily floating in air. I can see why you’re sorry for them to go. The irises are pretty spectacular as well.
