 June 19th, the only new peony was Feather Top.
 
The season is winding down now.  There a lot of flowers in bloom, but not many that have not opened yet this year.  The mature plants have lots of side buds to extend the season.  The rain keeps knocking off all of the petals.  It is hard to keep up with cutting off the seed pods.  Weeding is a full time job. I better get back to weeding.
