All the rain we've had ensured lush growth in the garden this year.
The heat that came after the rain??
The peonies reacted by blooming and fading in record time.
I'm a little sad about that. I love using peonies in flower arrangements and from the looks of things I'll be lucky to do it twice this year.
Mind you, that also means my heat loving plants are doing fabulous things right now.
There is always a silver lining in the garden. (Unless it hails. There is seldom a silver lining in hail . . .)
