We are lucky to be close to Bridgton. We can do basic shopping there, see a movie, go out for lunch and, then in June, there are the peonies.
The park in Bridgton is Shorey Park and it is right next to Highland Lake. This time of year there are peonies. I had thought there was a story about how the main street in Bridgton came to be populated with peonies but Google couldn't help today. This year (because I can walk), we parked the car and I strolled around an took pictures of these glorious flowers. I love the cloud-like fluffiness of the regular peonies but the single peonies are outstanding. I wouldn't presume to give these peonies names but I always thought they were called Japanese peonies.
I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for her weekly Pink Saturday! Please stop by and see the other pinks. Happy Pink Saturday!
