Double peony

  1. Our other peony plant just came into bloom. This one has a different bloom with a mass of petals and a very heavy head. Unfortunately they don't seem to last very long in bloom. With this image I tried to capture the delicacy of the petals and subtle colour variations.

  2. This is really lovely! You might want to correct your typo — the name of the flower is “peony”......plural being “peonies”.
     
  3. Thank you. Title corrected, I should have known that!!!
     
  4. Lovely shot, I love the delicate colors.
