Legion of Honor, I ordered Honor, it is pink. I got Legion of Honor a pleasant surprise. I have lots of single pinks already. Disappointed in this supplier since they got several flowers wrong.
June 11th I spent the day weeding. It was the only day without rain. I did not even look around. June 12th was too busy with the Oshawa Peony Festival and the family BBQ.
Next week has many more peonies to see.
This week had seven new plants to the garden and one that has been here for two years and bloomed for the first time. Hope that you had time to visit a peony garden near you.
