Peonies and Bling

 I'm a little obsessed with the Peonies at this point!
Of course it's not hard to love them!
 I brought one in that still had more opening to do and put it in with some Lilacs and Violas
 This smelled really good!
 Didn't last long though!
 This is where my peonies are...out front on my island in front of the house.  We live near a busy road so we put this island in many years ago to help cut down some noise and joined it with the big blue spruce tree that was growing there.
 There are some red ones behind these pinks that will be blooming soon.  
The purple Salvia is blooming real nice and the Hardy Geraniums too!
 On the other side of the island is this a John Franklin Shrub Rose that is just starting to bloom.  So far the rose chafer's haven't gotten to it yet.  They can munch this plant and destroy it in a couple of days.  They seem to come on when it gets hottest.  We've been having some rather comfortable weather so everything is still safe!
 This is a metal plant stand holder that I have a metal oval shaped bucket hanging from with annuals planted in it.  Asparagus Fern and New Guinea Impatiens
 I added some bling to it! See the bumble bee!  Found these at Cracker Barrel!  They are for indoors but I've adopted them to the outside!
 This is my other plant stand with more bling! This one has Swedish Ivy and Begonias (I didn't realize it matched my Hostas so much!)
See the Dragonfly! More bling!

I hope your gardens are growing well too!

    I love peonies too. I have a huge tree but it only had 2 buds this year. they opened when we were out of town, sniff. I love your gardens areas & bling, much like my BFF & neighbor. I have a wild yard :) stopping by from Little round table. Faythe @GMT

Welcome to Home and Gardening With Liz. I have combined my previous blogs “Infuse With Liz” and “Sit With Me In My Garden” into this new blog. I love interior decorating and gardening. I enjoy redefining interior spaces by moving things around and reusing decorative items already found in the home. I also enjoy creating tablescapes and an occasional crafting project. I'm so pleased you've stopped by. I invite you to follow me and I do hope you will keep coming back! Liz
