It's All About the Fleurs

We are not all work and no play around here. We tip-toe through the tulips, mark my words. Even as a self-described foliage gardener, I do appreciate the beauty of flowers and absolutely welcome them. Since it has been so (suddenly) hot here the past couple of weeks, everything is coming on fast and furious. Time to document what's blooming now. Here is a look at some flower highlights at Chickadee Gardens in mid-May in intentionally random order to mix it up and have a little fun. Enjoy! This was given to me by my friend and former boss Maurice of Joy Creek Nursery. He told me it is  Paeonia ruprechtiana from the Miller Botanical Garden. Its first flower deserves the opening spot in this post.
