Pink Rhododenrons and Peonies in Bloom
May has come and gone. June is upon us. The spring flowers have finally blossomed. The rhododendrons popped really well this year. The peony just came out on the last day of May and I got to take a picture this morning in the rain. You may remember the peony is my favorite flower. They have a wonderful scent and the blooms not last long.
The peony is a perennial plant which makes it easy to keep for years. This one came from my dad's yard many years ago. They also come in white and yellow. Beware that peonies do attract ants though I haven't seen many myself.
Peonies are named after the Greek God Paeon meaning medicine and healing. They are also very popular in China where they are used in their art often.
Do you have peonies or rhododendrons in your area?
