In no particular order as I want to get over to the gardens to weed the roses before the rain starts, here are some pictures of white and red tree peonies, the wild geraniums, a coral azaleas that positively glows in the shade, and a wedding party taking photos in front of the rhodos.
These clumps of wild geraniums are on the west side of the first bridge you come to along the Waterfront Trail at the Lakeshore Road entrance to the Gardens.
Continue along the Waterfront Trail past the geraniums and you can't miss the new peony bed adjacent to the path. This white tree peony was the first to bloom this spring. If you come to the Gardens in the next few weeks, many more peonies should be blooming.
The peony bed is generating a lot of interest from peony aficionados, equally divided between Asians (who really DO know their tree peonies!) and Westerners who just love peonies. Asians will offer planting and growing tips, and Westerners tend to ask for advice on how to plant and grow. Not surprising, though, as peonies have long been grown in China (see wiki for info).
I took these pictures the same day as the photos and video of the Kennedy memorial plaque.
