Peony Garden in Ann Arbor

Have you noticed there's a boatload of youngsters today that can't tell the difference between petunias, pansies and peonies amongst others? Now's the time to take them on a stroll! The Peony Garden in Ann Arbor, part of the University of Michigan's Nichols Arboretum, is the largest collection of these types of blooms in North America!  It is so worth a visit.  The tree peonies are in bloom right now, but the rest--which look like a massive army--are just ready to burst.  We took these photos during a gorgeous hike on Memorial Day.  Their 70 different varieties of peonies peak in mid June. They were a gift of William Upjohn and family.
