Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase highlighting what is growing in our gardens.
As April ends, so does my Coral Charm Peony, which had a good run this year but wind and rain got the best of it Friday morning. After the other flowers dropped their petals, two final buds opened later Friday so I am able to salute this lovely peony and remember it until next year.
I paired the coral peony with a red clematis that is performing well this spring, tucking in a few more bits of color for good measure with the help of snapdragon and thrift.
Antirrhinum majus ‘Speedy Sonnet Bronze’ (Snapdragon)
