I didn't plan those peonies. They have been in the yard for many, many years. Our house is 113 years old. The original owner planted those peonies.
Here are some flowers blooming that I did plant with one exception which is the climbing rose. It was planted by the people we bought the house from so I think they were planted between 1994 and 1997.
My secret sister from church gave me the lovely basket of pink impatiens I have hanging over some chives, sage, and mint. Those last 3 plants all bloom in purple. I tend to lump same colors together. It is so unintentional and irritating to me. I want a variety of colors but over the years the plants die out and I end up left with all the same colors in the same areas. I could plant more flowers but I am trying not to spend a lot of money on the yard. Maybe next year or I will find someone that wants to do a trade on plants.
