Hiding Spot in the Open

By Dyarnell @dyarnell
I've mentioned before that I like to take my cues from the garden itself - an example of this is with the bench in our Moon Garden.
When sitting on the bench looking at our home there is a lone branch hanging down from the large Blue Spruce between you and the house, and believe it or not, as slight as it is, it serves to create a vague sense of separation.
HIDING SPOT IN THE OPENWhen combined  with the 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. 
Paeonia lactiflora ‘Festiva Maxima’
It is an illusion I am trying to enhance by adding five new peony Festiva Maxima
HIDING SPOT IN THE OPENI am also dividing the existing lightly pink-tinged Peony into three and 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.
