Garden Diversion: Peonies, Iris, roses, hydrangeas, clematis
I love spring and all the fresh green colors and shades, but mostly I love all the blooming beauties in gardens here in Texas before it gets' hotter than the hinges of h---.
This week I went with six dear old friends (read from high school) down to a friend's amazing ranch in Central Texas, near Hico. Before we got there, we stopped at to walk the amazing garden's of Ellen McS. The peonies were glorious and abundant. Her iris come from an iris farm in Hondo, New Mexico, down near Roswell.
My ranch friend, Janet's, Penstemons are a prize that are difficult to grow in Texas, but she did it.
