A Walk Through My Garden

Let's walk through the garden.  My sweet friend, Danni, of Silo Hill Farm has asked me to label the photos from Yesterday's Post.  Here ya go, Danni!

This medium pink, fragrant, rugosa rose is Therese Bugnet.

Here is Therese again with native yellow trumpet honeysuckle (lonicera) and native crossvine (bignonia) in the background.

The name of this peony is Buckeye Belle.  When she first opens, the petals are almost black, then fade in the sunshine to magnificent shades of red.

Iris, but I don't know which hybrid.

This peony is Coral Charm.  A stunning color, but not fragrant at all.

Have a lovely day!

  1. GORGEOUS!! I love Iris' and Peony's. If i ever get a house with a yard, i am going to need your expertise to start my garden.

  2. I love that you labeled the flowers so I can ask for my faves at the garden center!

  3. Just Gorgeous!
    I LOVE peonies - had a ton of them in our last home - they make such beautiful arrangements in vases also :)

  4. I love all the color! Beautiful flowers. =0)
    I'm pretty bad at remembering names of flowers and plants, so I always love to see blog posts that show the names! I like that deep purple iris.

  5. Oh you are just way too sweet! Thank you so much for labeling these! I saw some that I had never seen before and want!! I love that Red Buckeye and am looking forward to that post. I just pinned this post because I love your flowers and your pictures are gorgeous!

  6. I just knew that rose was Therese Bugnet! I worked at a nursery when I was in high school, and that variety was my favorite of all the ones we sold. I've got three of them growing in my yard right now.

  7. I guessed right on the roses! Therese Bugnet are my favorite, I've got three of them in my yard.
