The peony season indeed went fast in front of the Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Syracuse.
When I got home from the board of trustees meeting at the Liverpool Public Library on Wednesday night, my dear wife Karen had even picked up all the fallen blossoms from our lawn.
Two weeks, not even. What a lovely and colorful life span it was. Eight days ago, the new peonies looked like this.
The good news, though, is that Karen pointed out that the hourglass garden a mere steps away is coming to full flourish.
That includes two, three, four roses bushes, included the yellow and red variety close enough for me to fit into that one frame above. The buds are emerging. You can tell their colors.
We love our rose season, which stretches far longer than our peony time. We’re hoping for a very good year for the roses.
What kind of year for the roses does it look like for you? What’s coming up for you in June? How was your May?
