This Year's Peony Garden

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

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 the garden, I knew I wanted many, many peonies in one large area. I chose a location across from my Winter House, where there is lots of room and full sun - a spot where I could also see the beautiful floral displays from my window. While many of my tree peonies came from Peony's Envy in Bernardsville, New Jersey, all the peonies in this garden came from Roy Klehm, the owner of Klehm’s Song Sparrow Nursery in Avalon, Wisconsin. I am happy to say, the garden has been a huge success and joy ever since.

Here are some photos.
