Lots in Bloom
It's a roseum elegans that I planted about twelve years ago. It's shady here in the north yard and we have a light mulch of chopped leaves at the base of the rhododendrons.
But it was the white ones (very fragrant) that started this show.
This bright red peony is a hybrid I bought many years ago from a daylily, iris, and peony breeder who lived in Monticello, Illinois. It is named Eliza Lundy.
Well, already many of these beauties have finished their season of flowering and others have come into bloom to take their place (turn, turn, turn), so I will need to go out with the trusty digital sometime soon again. In the meanwhile, I have been busy planting annuals in all the containers and buying some perennials to fill in beds that are going to be weeded. Below is the first annual planter pic. I'll take pics again later as the annuals grow and fill in the pots more.
