Oh land o' blooms

I love when a plant that you've completely forgotten about just pops up in your garden! I usually give weeds a pass in early spring, since I'm not great at identifying weeds from perennials yet. I let this one go because I thought maybe it was something I had planted last year, and it was! Purple phlox! I don't remember planting this where it is, so maybe I shifted dirt around and inadvertently relocated it. That and I added another four feet to this border last fall, so maybe it just seems like it moved.

Added a peonie, too, Sarah Burnhardt. Lovely pink doubles. This plant came with one bud and I think that's all she'll give this year. It's a lovely one though.

Also one close-up of the Mother's Day roses I received. These actually smell good, too! Not bad for a supermarket bunch! ;-)

Oooh your peonies are blooming already? Mine are just budding yet. I love peonies--once they get established, they just get thicker and more and more flowers.

That's what my step-mother said! I think it bloomed early because I just planted it...shallow roots, etc. I hope it does well over the winter.
