Today's Flowers # 44

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 4 GMT is the post time.

My Peonies are a large flower that can set a lot of blooms. I have this Pink Peony which a is very big plant.
The flowers are surely showy.
I liked the way this single bloom looked in the leaves.
My White Peony is much smaller but still is very showy. This was just before they bloomed.
This is the bloom of the White Peony.
The blooms don't last long so you have to capture them while you can. You can see some other great flowers at the site above.

Hi Tom, Gorgeous pictures of the Peonies. I noticed where you have yours staked. We have many of our lilies staked also because they are so tall and the blooms are top-heavy...

Glad you have such beautiful blooms and got some great photos.

You've got some beautiful peonies, Tom, and you did a great job of capturing their beautiful blossoms. The white one is nice but the pink one is absolutely fantastic.

Regina said...

Nice blooms.

It's very rare here to see a white peony.
I too wish they would stay a bit longer.
Beautiful pictures!

FG - I'm slowly getting back around some blogs now.

Very good blooms. I love the pink one amongst the green. I'll be back in the memes once I've turned around and settled back into a routine! My head is still on vacation. :(

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Wow those are great flowers. The Peonies sure have a fleeting beauty. They struggled a bit in the all the rain but they had an awful lot of flowers.

Rose said...

I think I need to get a pink one...the light pink that is. The one here is beautiful.

NCmountainwoman said...

I love peonies and my husband hated them. As soon as we had a good rain and they started to droop, he lopped them off.

What very beautiful flowers! I always love stopping by here : ). You participate in so many fun things and your pictures are always wonderful! Hope your week is great!

Pietro said...

Both Pink and White Peony are wonderful! You've taken a sequence of great photos, Fishing Guy.

Day4plus said...

Beautiful shots. That pink one is astounding. I have pink and white too. My white bears more than the pink---odd isn't it.

Robynn's Ravings said...

Found you through Michele at Rocky Mountain Photography and must say I found your flower photos exquisite! Isn't it amazing what the lens will show you and allow you to appreciate? Blessings to you!

Very pretty! I could get lost in the petals!

SandyCarlson said...

These flowers are bouquets unto themselves!

Sara G said...

Beautiful photo's!!
Love the colors!!

Mary said...

I do love peonies and yours are so pretty! That first one looks such a light pink. My pink ones are darker and very heavy...the heads really droop.

Arija said...

I do envy you your Peonies, impossible to grow in our heat and I love them so much.

Abe Lincoln said...

Your peonies are like mine as far as color goes but they are finished for this year. We got so much rain that they kept falling over.

Craig Glenn said...

Very nice Tom!

Lovely captures of these beautiful flowers. They always remind me of roses. :-)

nonizamboni said...

Peonies--the true flower of spring! Your photos are great and I could almost smell their wonderful fragrance too.

Torsdag said...

I love the last one, but I don't have them in my garden.

Gina said...

Wow they sure are stunning blooms! thanks for sharing :)

Paz said...

I. Love. Poenies. Yours are gorgeous!

Tipper said...

I have peonies-but not those colors-wish you lived close enough to share : )

Lanny said...

I think that peonies smell like the inside of a florist cooler. I am slighly vexed that my peony plants do not seem to get as large as they ought but I do get blooms.

Yours are very nice indeed.
