Arbour, Roses & Peonies

The best surprise about our garden has been the amount of peonies we have – 6 light pinks in the front, and 1 gorgeous deep pinky/purpley one in the back.

This arbour is the focal point of our garden right now – notice the yellow roses on the left, and the smaller red rose on the right. Hoping next year the red rose will climb up a bit more, but all-in-all – very happy!

Here’s a close-up of a peony. I love the fullness, looks like a “pouf of peony”.

I also took a picture of an unopened peony – I think it’s pretty interesting that peonies need ants in order to open properly.

And last – a light-pink in full bloom.
