I refused to share this photo until I remembered its name. The plant blooms like a wild flower and maybe is a wildflower but its bloom time is short. The foliage dies down pretty quickly once it is bloomed out. The bad thing I really don't like about it is that it can get trampled by a dog and ie does not spring back. Its stems and foliage are flimsy.
This peony from my wife's farm home is a different variety than I have had in my collection. The layer of ruffle edging is on the outside of the center petals. There is still a center of small petals. It is not red but yet not a pink either.
While out staking the new iris up from its fall to the ground, I noticed this lily is about ready to show its color. I don't usually photograph all the progress of a lily but this one will surprise me with what its color is and also the shape of the flowers.
I bought morning glory seed yesterday and some more sunflower seeds. I like the large ones and will figure out a new place to plant them this year. I bought my moss rose starts to put in my enamel pan that sits on the patio table.
With all the tomatoes that I started by seed I still needed to buy one cherry tomato plant. I did so yesterday and I am debating whether to put it in a large planter or in the ground. I suspect it would do a lot better in the ground.
A project for me today is to make a woven fence wire cover for my outside tank/pond. I want the goldfish outside for the summer and to move the birds back into the window so they can watch things going on outside. I saw our resident raccoon last night while I was taking button to the back yard. It had climbed the porch post and crawled up on the roof of the house. I know the racoon can jump right into the water to get the fish if it wants to. I suppose I will always have one of those animals around until the last big silver maple is taken down. I think the racoon likes to crawl up onto the roof and then climbs into the pine tree nearby. I will have to cut more branches away from the roof of the house to stop that bugger from being up there.
