Unlike last year, when barely a bud was to be found, this year’s Peony bushes have been full! As each day passed, the buds opened and the most beautiful blooms emerged. I just could not stop shooting and before I knew it, the file had grown to over 60 images.
Have no fear! I’m only sharing some of the images, most in color, some in B&W.
The images progess from buds
and the ants that help the buds to open.
Then the blooms began to open
Even the leaves are captivating
I only wish I could somehow share the aroma of these gorgeous flowers!
