Peony

Our garden is looking pretty shite at the moment. Lots of rain and not a lot of time, money or energy have really taken a toll.

The only things that are looking really good are the peonies. Stunning. They also prove that I have no future ahead of me as a sniper - I couldn't get a properly focused picture no matter what I did (falling short of actually getting out my tripod, that would have been an effort too far). Fortunately, I like this over-exposed, slightly-blurred, shaky-hand, bad-tattoo effect.

A gorgeous shot! We, too, are suffering the effects of too much rain. Having put in a lot of shrubs and bushes and trees, however, this has been a good thing. For our flowers, though, not so much.

You lucky girl, at least your Peonies are blooming! We've had some crazy weather our way too and my Peonies are sitting with buds that I'm afraid will not bloom.

I'm no pro at snapping, as you well know, however, I think this is a GREAT shot and I'm delighted you shared it!!! Thanks:)

Arlene - it sort of washes all the colour out of the garden, doesn't it?

Louise - I have my doubts about the smaller one blooming properly, but this one is a trooper!

I love the arty effect you've got there - certainly looks like it was intended!

My garden needs (but isn't going to get) attention. Only the rose is flowering. Well, aside from the dandelions...
