Our peony is one of the shrubs that was already here when we moved in ten years ago. I have never photographed it though as it takes ages for the flower buds to open and then just as they reach their peak it goes over. It’s a shame that the flowers, although lovely, are so short lived.
This year I thought that I would try to catch it.
It will be like this for a few days and then the flowers will drop. It’s lovely while it lasts though.
