It’s Flower Friday, which means there’s a great blog hop going on, hosted by our fur-iends over at Living Laughing Barking in Our Backyard. ‘Hop’ on over and visit some amazing gardens.
Our lupines have been in full bloom lately (despite a hail storm earlier in the week) but now my garden favorite is beginning to take center stage. Who might that be? Why…peonies and in second place, poppies. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the poppies but the peonies…SWOON…they are my absolute favorites! There’s nothing like a cut bouquet of these fragrant blooms on the table. Makes you want to sniff the screen, doesn’t it?
I love these gorgeous flowers and while they love sunny conditions, I have a few bushes that have managed to perform nicely despite some afternoon shade from a large maple tree. Not sure how these guys have managed to flourish since the soil is crap, the sunlight not especially ideal and I’m stingy as all get-out with water, but these guys bloom in shades of creamy white, pale pink, and a bright fuchsia number that just sends me.

Do you have a garden full of peonies? What’s your favorite? How are your weekend plans shaping up? Hope it’s grand.
Live, love, bark! 🐾
