For an opportunity to walk in peony fields on a smaller scale, we traveled four miles northeast of Aldeman's to our fourth stop of the day at Brooks Gardens.
Not nearly as fancy or groomed as Aldeman's, it was nevertheless a fun stop, reached by a gravel road off the main thoroughfare. Exploring hidden treasures is always a fun adventure.
This one was HUGE!
The display garden.
This fading flower reveals its structure.
If you want to know how we find all of these places, they are all in this book, including gardens in our own back yard, so to speak.
Our back yard hasn't quite qualified for the book, ....yet. :-)
