Tending the garden … and the camera, too

After weeks at Winterthur, my own gardens seemed, shall we say, a little disheveled.  The single tree peony had bloomed and blown while I was away, but once I turned to neatening the front bed, I discovered a single bud.  It bloomed today.

The peonies had just come into bloom there, too.
