Spring Garden part II (special peony edition)

Peony photos were taken about a week ago, before all the flowers blossomed and the bush collapsed under its own weight, as peonies are wont to do.

I don't actually know what these flowers are. They're poking through from our neighbor's side of the fence. Comments are appreciated. (UPDATE: thanks to my commentators, now I know.) Lily of the valley:

Honeysuckle

This flying flower is a temporary visitor to our garden, but it stayed in one spot long enough to get some good photos.

I heard that you should put those tomato wire circular thingys in the peony bushes when they start to come back in the spring so then when they bloom, they are supported and are less likely to fall over. Never seen it or tried it, but maybe could work.

The vine with the red-orange blooms is Lonicera (Honeysuckle), can't tell which variety without seeing more of it. It's a bit aggressive...

I looooove those progressive peony shots- they are such beautiful and delicious-smelling flowers. Mmmm.
