Garden viewing

Just some pictures because I am so happy - the small tree peony is in full bloom. Last year we had no tree peony blossoms at all due to the big freeze/cold spring.
View into the inner (walled) garden, taken from the porch:

peony, yeah 3 big buds.


Hiroyuki hat gesagt…

So, have you done hanami in the Japanese way, with bento, dango, and sake? (laugh)

Are tree peonies common plants in Germany?

Fräulein Trude hat gesagt…

Today with a sandwich and a beer (or 2) after some serious gardening (laugh). I cleared the space behind the garage...
Tree peonies are cultivated in private gardens, but - because they are spoiled princesses, there are much more often the common non-woody peonies to be found.
