What beautiful tree peonies! I tried to grow one before, but it never made it. This one obviously loves where it is.

Somehow this lovely white colour matches the silence, makes it even more beautiful.( But I also very much enjot reading your written words, like poems, every thing has it's time :)

Beautiful flowers! No wonder they were considered 'royal flowers' in ancient China.

Beautiful Pictures! I have never seen a peony flower, though I do have a small painting of it on my wall, which I picked up from my trip to Shanghai. Thx for sharing. Loved the pastel colours!

Ever Green Tree said...

I have one peony in a single form flower .. "Blaze" red with yellow interior .. it is supposed to be very prolific eventually with many flowers ..
This one here looks totally frilly and girlie ;-)
Gorgeous !

Tree peonies are so gorgeous, love the hint of purple at the base of the petals. They are like orchids to me....love them all and can't decide which one to take home.

Nigh on perfect both colour and form.

As good as any 'blush' rose, it's obviously very happy in your garden

Jean said...

Sigh, you don't know the peony envy I have! They are just so gorgeous. Ah well, at least I get to occasionally buy cut ones at the store!

The Intercontinental Gardener said...

Ohhh, what can I say? Such wonderful photos, those peony ladies are just so flutteringly elegant. Even if the Chinese attribute them the male principle of the universe, for me they will always be "ladies"... Thank you for mentioning my post, too, Carol!

The contrast of Light and the shadow...
They enhance the beautiful peony still more.

Thank you for showing a wonderful moment.

Carol said...

Thank you everyone! In answer to Melissa's question I use a simple Nikon D40X... wish I had a better one! I have a 55-200 lens and a 18-55 lens... most of these were taken with the latter. These peonies were fabulous!
