    Such a rich colour. Just lovely

  10. That is one amazing photo, Eliza. 👏🏻👏🏻

  11. Lovely! Different from the standard peony. I like it better.

  12. Alice says:

    A harmonious bouquet, lovely photo and the scent….

  13. shoreacres says:

    I’m not sure I’ve seen a single. The surrounding colors set it off beautifully.

  14. The peony is a beauty. Wonderful composition too!

    Awesome shot of Tree Peony flower, and other flowers as well!

      Thank you, Hien. Actually, this is a single P. lactiflora bloom, but it does look a lot like the Itoh types. I wish I did have tree peonies, but their prices have always given me pause!

    What a gorgeous peony Eliza and such a lovely bouquet too! 🌺💗🌺

  17. I have no idea the name but one of our peonies resembles this one of yours. It’s hard to beat a peony for beauty unless it’s a dahlia. 🙂

  18. Dale says:

    ‘Tis the season of the peony! Beautiful. And, I’m thinking, one that I will eventually add to my garden… when I am ready to start work on it, that is!

  19. derrycats says:

    I love peonies – favorite flower hands down,

  20. Debbie says:

    I love peonies, but I can’t abide all those ants! It seems like every time I try to sniff one, it’s full of them. I suppose they, too, need to eat though, huh?!

  21. This is pleasantly colorful arrangement.

  22. A peek inside! Love all the colors, Eliza!

  23. Kris P says:

    SO envious….

  24. Maria says:

    Great angle and beautiful colours!

  25. spanishwoods says:

    gorgeous shot Eliza

  26. Beautiful image Eliza! Enjoyed seeing your image!

  27. pbmgarden says:

    An elegant peony. Great color and form on this one.

  28. susurrus says:

    What a treat. The peony would be lovely alone but the other flowers and foliage add so much extra.

  29. Beautiful Eliza 🙂

  30. Very pretty natural arrangement! I think peonies are some of the most beautiful of flowers.

  31. Not a profusion of peonies, but a profusion of petals and leaves.

  32. Jet Eliot says:

    Thank you for this summer delight, Eliza.

  33. Lovely, lovely, lovely, Eliza. My grandmother used to grow peonies when I was a small girl. I’ve just found your site. You have a great eye! 🌞

  34. Robin says:

    Oh, that is so beautiful!! ♥♥♥

    A beautiful blend of colors, and a wonderful shot of a peony, one of my favorites (the flower of Hong Kong, which always holds a special place for me).

  36. Bela Johnson says:

    One of my favorite flowers. What a beautiful photograph, Eliza! ❤️❤️❤️

  37. naturebackin says:

    Beautiful and the peony stamens are remarkable.

  38. Jewels says:

    Such a cheerful mix of color, Eliza!

  39. Such lovely flowers…(Suzanne)
