    Reblogged this on Blue Dragon Journal and commented:

  4. Lovely. I’ve been failing to photograph some of those for a few days. Perhaps I should bring them inside ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. pastpeter says:

    Beautiful blooms, Eliza! The delicacy of their coloring goes well with their soft fragrance. They last better indoors than you might expect.

  6. Alice says:

    We’re so fortunate to live on a planet with some many different kinds of flowers. The Little Prince only had a rose.

  7. Treah Pichette says:

    Gorgeous! Nothing like the voluptuous peony!

    They look like they are little fairy ball growns.

    What a treat for the eyes first thing in the morning!

  16. Brian Skeys says:

    They are like the bearded iris, fleetingly beautiful.
    All the more precious for it.

  17. Lovely plus a great fragrance – win, win. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. So pretty Eliza! It’s such a shame they don’t last longer. Maybe that’s why we love them so.

    The framing of these is just great!

    I’ve often thought ‘peony’ to be such a tame word for such rambunctious flowers. ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. BillboardVagabond says:

    Love the images. Thanks for sharing

    So beautiful. I love peonies. Their large ‘frothy’ collection of petals is so lovely and any flower lover couldn’t help being drawn to their blooms.

  28. Ah, my grandmotherโ€™s favorite. canโ€™t see one without thinking of her.

  29. Really lovely! Peonies, one of the joys of summer. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  30. Beautiful photography ๐ŸŒฟ

  31. That’s a lovely bouquet of doubles, Eliza. They must have a wonderful scent as the paler ones usually are more perfumed than the dark ones.

  32. Just gorgeous – How I wish I could smell it
