Peony it creates almost enough of a barrier that you feel sheltered from the bright lights of the house.
Intimately close, yet at the same time set apart.
It is an illusion I am trying to enhance by adding five new peony Festiva Maxima
planting them along the border and the pathway. New and old have been inter-planted and odd roots that fell away from the transplant were thrown into the same holes as the new plantings. The more blended these two are, the better.
While I have read that Peony do not like to be transplanted I have personally had luck with it before, so I am willing to try again. My hope is that the increased size of the Peony border between the house and bench will enhance the sense of separation and increase the feeling that one is tucked away in a forest.
