Ridgewood Cemetery– a flowering peony showcase and more

NORTH LIBERTY– Johnson County provides one of those lesser-known but most wonderful places to visit– the North Liberty Ridgewood Cemetery. While many go there often to set on the old hillside benches and remember family and friends, many go there to experience one of the most extensive plantings of peonies you will ever see. It’s especially meaningful in May when that peony display is at its finest. They are absolutely beautiful with their many varieties of old pioneer multi-colored flowers– and oh my, that distinct and wonderful smell.
