Things I Like About June #1 - Peonies

Peonies are one of my favourite flowers, and June is the month to enjoy them. They have such extravagant big blooms and their scent is heavenly.

Peter planted 3 Peonies in our backyard 20 years ago and they are still there, putting on an amazing show every June. Right now, they are loaded with buds and many fat lush blooms. I think one of the reasons I like them is the fact that they require so little care - they give and give and I can just sit back and enjoy. My kind of gardening!

I love peonies too. In Alexandria we had a long hedge of them on one side of the property. Where we are now they are struggling due to those nasty Japanese beetles. We got traps for the beetles and hopefully they do the job.

Voluptuous peonies. Yes, they're wonderful.
