The Peonies right now are my favorite. They bring back wonderful memories of when I was a child. I lived next door to my grandmother who shared a garden with my mother. They had a strip of Peonies that were gorgeous and in my mind HUGE. Of course, I was very little, but I do remember them being the biggest flowers I'd ever seen.
Ours are really big also.
This is the first year we've had such beautiful blooms on our "Rhodies". They don't last long but are so pretty while they're here.
We have several gardens in the back; the rock garden is closest and has really taken off this year.
Knock out roses - not my favorite roses but have such beautiful color and last throughout the summer.
