…the one with yet another walk through the garden.

I thought for sure I’d be showing you peonies this week but Mother Nature has had other ideas (although RR said they’d be blooming *last* week.  I guess his powers of prediction do not extend to herbaceous peonies…yes, I have been gloating over this.  No, I’m not proud of it).  This is what my peonies look like right now:

Stubborn Peonies

They are so. stubborn.  I’m starting to wonder if they’re going to bloom at all or if the tightly squeezed shut balls will just drop off out of spite.  Peonies can be persnickety bitches.  ;o)

So, you get Azaleas:


and Rhododendrons (with a visitor):

My Rhodies

Still pretty, right?  Have a great weekend!
