more from the kitchen window

I've spent the last few weeks frantically transplanting everything I could from the old house about to be sold to the new house until I ran out of space. Very little of it will bloom this year, due to the shock, but I can steal views of the neighbors' flowers from the kitchen window, and the porch.

Some of the plants I've moved include yellow iris, but of a different shade than these. If you look hard, you can see the red roses, too. I have no roses, but this appears to be a very good neighborhood for them, so I expect to be getting some this fall.

The peonies at the corner of the shadow are the darkest red I've ever seen in a peony. I'm not sure which of my peonies from the old place I dug up, because they weren't blooming yet, and there are lots and lots of them, but I know none of them were anything like that. I must cultivate my neighbor and try to beg some in the future.


  1. Wow, sounds like a lot of work, but so worth it!!!!

  2. Hang on, I should get the pictures uploaded and the words written by the end of the week. I moved a lot of flowers, but the pictures are mostly green. Think future.

  3. Love the peonies. Mine are up, but won't bloom for quite awhile yet. So much slower here.
    I would definitely be cozying up to the neighbour with the ulterior motive of scooping some of those peonies!!
