Wondering if the peonies are blooming at A Peony Garden yet? Almost. “I give it until next Thursday,” says garden maven and peony expert, Eleanor Tickner. (That’s May 29th, and I’m counting the days.) We met Eleanor two seasons ago while on the hunt for peonies as cut flowers, and succumbed to peony mania in the process. Read the BLOG POST describing all the details. Right now, there are many buds and a few blooms over at the garden in Glen Mills, and we were lucky enough to catch a glimpse!
And of course, no visit would be complete without a greeting from our old pal, Riddler, who is still going strong. But don’t worry, his humans are very responsible with dog-shy visitors.
See you in a little over a week, Eleanor! Thanks for creating a little slice of heaven on earth for us to visit.
