The Summer House Garden is Blooming

It's such a joy to see the gardens transform in spring. This week, the sunken garden behind my Summer House is blooming so beautifully.

I began this formal garden more than 10 years ago and have added many different kinds of plants and trees ever since. I've planted American and English boxwood, ginkgo trees, smoke bushes, Siberian weeping pea shrubs, peonies, hostas, lilies, and so much more. Right now, everything is so green and the tree peonies are glorious - many are showing off their unimaginably large, and often fragrant, pink, yellow, and burgundy flowers. I shared some photos over the weekend on my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48, did you see them?

Here are a few more, enjoy.
