Princess Peony has arrived, gracing us with her blushing presence and sublimely sweet scent. I've been waiting for her.

A little big?

I've always wanted to put a flag up in the holder screwed to the front of the house. I just never got around to buying one until this weekend. Looks a little big, though...

But don't you love the huechera and azaleas out front? I'm so glad my husband is always willing to dig and move plants on my whim--those azaleas were a little deeper than I could get to.

Peppers are about to bud and the radishes have grown 6 inches since this picture was taken last week. You almost can't find the pepper plants anymore!

An Eye for Color

Who knew he was so good at colors? My husband picked out this purple Heuchera ("Plum Pudding") at Boston Tropical Tree and then moved the variegated ground cover from the hillside. It makes a cute little vignette under the arborvitae next to the shed.
