|This "volunteer" pale lavender columbine is blooming between the garage and an old pot-bellied stove that was here|
long before we moved into this house 35 years ago.
|More "volunteer" flowers---oxeye daisies, perhaps. They pop up just about everywhere.|
|A surprise this year, growing in the shade of a fence and peony plants: spray roses which must be the original|
rose used to graft a hybrid tea I planted at least 20 years ago and thought had winter-killed not long afterwards.
|The honeybees love the peonies; this is Coral Charm, a large, prolific peony that lives up to its name.|
