The peonies have appeared this week which is so very exciting! Only a few have truly opened and shown their beautiful blooms, and I am excited to see the rest of them in the next couple weeks! I don't know the name of the first one pictured, but its definitely my favorite bloom in the garden right now. The second bloom is Bartzella Itoah Peony and the last peony shown is a Festiva Maxima. So many more Peony's to share with you next week!
The roses are what has really took center stage this week! So many gorgeous blooms in so many shades of pink! Sharing the names of the roses in order of the photo's. Abraham Darby Rose, Boscobel Rose, Leander Rose, Mary Rose, Nicole Carol Miller Rose, Cottage Rose, Augustine Guinoisseau Tea Rose, Wisely Rose, Mme. Isaac Pereire, Vinyard Song, Gertrude Jekyll Rose, Winchester Cathedral, Blush Noisette Climbing Rose and the Mayflower Rose.
After six weeks of waiting for permits, they were finally approved this week and Riccon Construction has began the renovation of our patio renovation! Here is a video I took today so that you can see where we are in the process. I promise to share more as this project progresses.
