PEONIES, IRIS AND ONIONS !!!!

May 17, 2017

The peonies, iris and my new favorite onion – the ornamental  Allium Pink Jewel are all in bloom at the Missouri Botanical Gardens!

The onions are  not edible – just in case you wondered.

Bird of the day – I found a  fountain I have never seen before hidden near the ornamental onions!

Hope you enjoyed!

    So pretty. My dad would mow over his peonies and they would come back religiously. We would cut them put them in a vase and then mom would yell at all the ants they brought with them. It is one of my favorites! I still am trying to get rid of my Iris’s shame on me! They keep coming back too after laying dormant or as I thought, dead!
