Farewell, flower friends

Some flowers I'll be able to replace in my new garden. Aliums, of course, are easy.

And this remarkably similarly-colored plant, which I can't remember the name of, grows really well here. Starts with a C, I think. Anyone?

But it will be very hard to say goodbye to Mrs. FDR, who is blooming quite spectacularly this year, and she beat out Charlie's White, who is usually first. I planted two each of them and Hermione my first year in this house. I got them from Klehm Nursery, now Song Sparrow Farm. They have the best peonies. And nice daylilies and hostas, too.

I wish I could take the peonies with me, but that's not to be.


  1. Oh - what a beautiful peony! It would kill me to leave some of my special plants - so I understand.

    I think the mystery plant is a centaurea - I had some that looked just like that.

  2. That's it! I was thinking "centaurum" and that didn't seem right.
