Peonies

This is what peonies look like after an inch of rain...
But I can shake some of the water out,
or admire it on the buds.
Or simply play with the photos...
I am linking this post with Nature Footstep Blo-Ma.

Rain does batter flowers so. Nonetheless you have captured the beauty of the peonies - such effervescent flowers, I think:-)

I love peonies Judy, although they are not a long-lasting flower in the garden are they? The best word to describe them I think is 'blowsy'

gorgeosu shots and great photowork. You have come a long way I think.
My favourite today is the last one. It is clear and crisp and I like teh contrast in colors. :)

Oh, PRETTY! I think that last shot is my favorite! I hope I haven't missed the peonies at the botanic garden this year.

I love peonies, but they do look terrible after a lot of rain. And it always rains during peony season. I didn't even get photos of mine this year.

Marie said...

I adore peonies! What incredible macros! Wow! Sorry I am so far behind with you (and most everyone else!)
