As quickly as it came, peony season is over. I love how dramatic and pretty peonies are. I will go to great lengths to photograph them, especially dodging a sprinkler that clearly had it out for me at Clark Botanic Garden. Just when I thought I had the pattern figured out and would run over to the peonies to snap a few shots the sprinkler would pelt me with a harsh spray of water. Thankfully, it was rather warm out so the water was welcomed and it was worth it to get photos with water droplets on the petals!
