Pretty in Pink Peonies

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!

    Absolutely adore peonies but there are so short-lived. Maybe that’s why we find them so beautiful?? Wonderful captures.

      Thank you! I hate how short their bloom life is, but I enjoy as much of their beauty as I can.
