After The Rain

There were big rains and thunderstorms for a few days this week, and while I thought I had staked the peonies strongly enough, they were not; and I came downstairs and into the garden to see my proud beauties with their heads down, almost touching the ground as if they were ashamed. I can be overwhelmed by their voluptuousness and their fragrance but I thought they took it for granted. So here they are lying about rather wantonly in the early light.

  1. Your photos are so good, I can smell the peonies.

  2. Some great photos of those fragrant beauties, one of my favorite flowers...

    1. Thanks Sharmon, I used to think roses were my favourite flower, but have to admit to having a huge passion for peonies, they always mark a particular time in the garden.


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
