What a beautiful garden !

I miss having Sweet Peas they are truly divine and so very envious that you have Peonies in your garden.
I just bought some Peonies and by the time I got home three of them had opened. I think it is just that hot here in Tucson air conditioned car or not.

cheers, parsnip

Map: I have a bowl in the hall and it permeates the whole house.

John.G: its take me nearly 25 years to grow them. They hate being moved I learned.

Parsnip: I wonder what colour yours are?

Jimmy said...

I'm envious of your roses Pat, you must have the magic touch as well as a keen eye and a green thumb.

Pat said...

Jimmy: I'm not that good - the rose is a replacement for one I lost. So thanks for the touch and eye and I'll pass on the thumb:)

Pat...
I had a choice of a deep rosy magenta or the one I picked was a white tinted with a soft pink.
So beautiful.

cheers, parsnip

Peonies are my all time favorites!

Guyana-Gyal said...

Mmm, I want to lie there on a blanket and listen to music, while the flowers' perfume drift over me.

Pat said...

Granny Annie: the fact that they are difficult to grow makes them more desirable to me.

GG: I can do that - once the grass has dried;)

The sweet peas and the peonies smell wonderfully. Mel did a bridal bouquet last weekend with both in it, and the smell was intoxicating!

Pat said...

Judy: sounds like a marriage made in Heaven.
