Oh the gloriousness of peonies in the spring! Large and lush. Over on the right is Cousin It (the umbrella tree). So named because it reminds me of the character from the Addams Family with all the long hair. This tree's limbs will soon touch the ground and will need a trim. Hence, the name. The peonies will be gone in about a week as long as there is no hard rain, which has a tendency to batter the delicate flower heads and make them bend to the ground. They are supported by upside down tomato cages for now.
