Flower gardens are wonderful, and so are fields of blooming flowers growing in rows upon rows. Here are some photos from last May when I went to Oregon on a flower viewing trip.
I learned about the Adelman Peony Gardens when I arrived in the area to see the Schreiner Iris fields and display garden.
I spent some time looking at the beautiful large peonies in the display gardens and the plants for sale near the sale barn. Then I noticed the path out to the fields and off I went. [I live near farms of daffodils, tulips and iris where the walking paths tend to get pretty muddy.] However, at the Adelman Peony Gardens, the walking paths between sections are all mowed grass and are very easy to walk along. I walked all over the fields and loved seeing the shades of color especially the dark, medium and light corals. In my garden I have shades of pink and white. I hope to add a coral to my garden this year- last year all the corals were sold out.
One thing I learned is that Peony plants aren’t as fragile as I thought and they can be transplanted, though not too often. I bought a couple white varieties and wedged them into my car for a happy drive to their new home.
