More garden pics

Just a few more pictures that didn't make it into the last post.  The first is a bouquet of Julia Child (yellow) and Sir Walter Raleigh (pink) roses, and some dark purple Siberian Iris.  Such brilliant colors!

Next the Rainbow knockout roses.  They are mostly pink, but have a little yellow in their centers, and the bush is as full as we've ever seen it!

And lastly, the pale pink peony in the bird garden.  We had a gully-washer this afternoon, and it's huge blossoms are now waterlogged and laying on the ground.  All 3 colors of our peonies came from our neighbor across the street.  They used to be all lined up like a hedge, but a pin oak tree planted from an acorn overgrew them and they weren't getting enough sun, so we got transplants of them.
