The peony garden at the University of Michigan is a great place to visit in Spring. They have over 270 historic peony varieties situated in 27 beds that are nestled amongst the trees in the Nichols Arboretum. Dr. W. E. Upjohn, the founder of Upjohn Pharmaceutical Company, donated peonies to the University of Michigan in 1922. The peony garden was opened to the public in 1927 and has been a beloved destination for flower lovers ever since.
Tom and I visited the peony garden for the first time last Spring. It was a beautiful site and I am looking forward to visiting again this season. Since we are all suffering from Spring fever, I thought it would be a great idea to share some photos from our visit.
