Last month, we spent a few hours on a Saturday walking around a private peony garden near where my in-laws live. Little Buddy loves being outdoors (he takes after Mr. Handsome), and he enjoyed looking at all the colorful flowers (or at least we think he enjoyed it). And I absolutely adore the smell of peonies! It’s so sad that they are only around for such a short time each year.
Below are a few photos of the peony garden. I am also including three pictures of uniquely colored roses. My brother took them when he visited the International Rose Test Garden in Portland, Oregon, a few weeks ago.
