My Peonies


Yesterday while working in the garden planting flowers, I discovered that my peonies were in full bloom. They are a yummy peach color semi-double hybrid called Coral Charm. We planted them close to 28 years ago and they are still growing strong all these years later. Our neighbors planted peonies from the same nursery in their yard when they built their home in the 50's! 
As they continue to open, the flowers turn a creamy ivory color.  
I planted this purple Clematis along the side of our garage not knowing for sure if that was the best place for it in regards to how much sun it would need. I always think it is such a miracle that these delicate flowers grow and bloom every year from one single skinny vine branch.
