Peonies and roses
A small red peony - no name label - with a bug inside. This is a small 2nd year plant, with two blossoms.
This white peony with yellow centre is really beautiful. No name label, sorry.
This pink peony with yellow centre is almost finished - the petals are starting to dry out.
This beautiful rose is just about to burst into bloom. You can see that the older leaves have lots of holes in them and the newer growth seems to be free of the insect damage. I hope this means the new mixture I am spraying on the roses is working to control the insects as well as mildew.
Rose. Pink. Need I say more?
Rose. Pink. Can you guess Freda's favourite colour?
