Some of my peonies are finally starting to bloom after a long awaited growth period. Sometimes I look at the buds a wonder, "how much bigger are they gonna GET!?". I snapped this picture the day before the first bloom of the summer:
And here it is on bloom day! So delicate and pretty.
In this pitcher pot I have planted bunny tails grass, which will be nice in the fall/winter months....at least, I think it'll stay through winter. Its on the front porch, so it shouldn't get too covered in snow. Anyway, surrounding the grass are moss roses that are just starting to take off. Last year, I removed the seed pods after they formed and was able to save the seeds from the plants I had purchased. What a great way to save money!
