Very pretty! I like the touch of red. Peonies are so pretty – we have a couple in the garden but I think the area is too shady now and they don’t do very well.
thanks – mine are also in a shady spot and aren’t doing too great. I’ve been thinking of trying to move them. I had to cut these flowers to photograph since they had all flopped over. .. but boy do they smell nice!
Really like this picture. The green/highlight corner is a little distracting though.
Wish I had a yard for a garden. 🙂 I am jealous. 😉
thanks Charlie – yes, I know what you mean about the green. was thinking of airbrushing it out.
I admire your ability to match the title with the images so brilliantly! My climate is too hot and harsh for these beauties, but I’m an admirer just the same.
thanks E – I try not to be too literal all the time.
I like the creamy colors
thanks Sandra – they sure are pretty flowers with so many shades of the same color.
