I missed the peonies. I couldn't come up up last week and this is the price -no wonderful color and scent to bring back to my apartment as I did last year. As you can see there were a gazillion buds a few weeks ago ready to burst into bloom as they do reliably every year. I very sadly had the chore of removing the spent blooms which was the theme of this weeks gardening - being class monitor - trimming, cutting back and deadheading making sure everyone was being well behaved.
