There were several peonies in there along with Black-eyed Susans, a wayward burning bush, a few Irises, several Pincushion flowers and one Amsonia...at least I think that's what it's called. I'll have to look it up to be sure.

Anyway, so with the weather cooling considerably now--it's been going way down into the 50's overnight for the past few weeks. Yes, autumn starts here in August-- I wanted to start with the transplanting of these tree peonies and other things to make room for all the roses I want to put in the Rose bed. Makes sense, right? Well, I thought so.

So, yes, there is room now for the tree peonies.
I'll keep an eye out and see if the roots I left behind do anything so wild as to re-sprout and give me another tree peony. Wouldn't that be wild? Stranger things have been known to happen...especially in my yard!
Not having a good "pink" flower bed, the pink tree peony went into the yellow bed too. I know, I know! What am I thinking??? But what the hey? It needed a new home and there it was, an empty spot. Seemed like serendipity to me.
