    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 πŸ™‚

  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. πŸ™‚

  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!

  25. Widdershins says:

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

  26. BillboardVagabond says:

    Love the images. Thanks for sharing

  27. Vicki says:

    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 grandmother’s favorite. can’t see one without thinking of her.

  29. Really lovely! Peonies, one of the joys of summer. 😊

  30. Beautiful photography 🌿

  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
