A Look at My Blooming Herbaceous Peony Garden

My herbaceous peony garden is blooming with brilliant pinks and whites!

One of the most anticipated sights on the farm is my herbaceous peony garden in full bloom. Every year, I often invite family and friends to stop by and enjoy its splendor. When I first planted my peony garden, I focused on pink varieties, and planted 11-double rows of 22-peony types - all purchased from Roy Klehm, owner of Klehm’s Song Sparrow Nursery in Avalon, Wisconsin. I chose the varieties for their colors, their forms and their long blooming periods. And, I am happy to say, the garden has been a success ever since.

Here are some photos of my garden taken this week - enjoy.
