  • Peonies from Eva’s garden–Boston’s Best-Kept Secret.
  • Back by popular demand: Gardenista’s Raspberry Sparkler recipe, our favorite Fourth of July cocktail. Another way to concoct a pink drink? Just add Michelle’s Rose Petal Ice Cubes.
  • White, blue, pink, or purple, how do you like your hydrangeas? In this week’s Field Guide, learn what makes the Victorian favorite thrive–and how to shift colors to suit your fancy.
  • Imagine if this were your office. Floral designer Manuela Sosa works–and entertains–in a tiny glass greenhouse in the hills above Barcelona. In Outbuilding of the Week, watch her get it ready for a “Welcome Summer” dinner party.
