Isn’t it the quite contrary Mary who got asked that question? I love peeking at other people’s gardens. Flowers are gorgeous and they make me smile. Personally I can’t grow many blooming plants. I’ve said it here before, I stick to succulents because they need little care (other than remembering which ones DON’T like a lot of sun or water). But I do have my favorites: peonies. Oh, how I love those flowers. Prettier than roses, I think. Big frothy heads of bright magenta, pink, peach and white. As you can see, my cat Maxwell rather takes to them too. My dream is to have a yard full of peony bushes, hundreds of them all spilling over with heavy blossoms that drench the air with delicious fragrance. That is how I want my garden to grow.
What about you? What are your favorite flowers and do you grow them or just wander by neighbors’ yards and admire them?
