Eye candy Friday

Sadly, the peony proliferation is officially over. My blooms braved the numerous storms as best they could, but it's hard to be continually beaten to the ground and survive. Luckily, I cut several luscious bouquets early in the budding stage so I had many to enjoy indoors.

I had a great time capturing images of these flowers, and this is probably my favorite of the bunch. I still have a few mini buds--those little ones on each side of the large blooms--in tiny vases around the house. They're fading fast, though. Sigh. Time to bring on the hydrangeas!

Oooh, lovely! Too bad they got beaten down by the weather. The worst of the storms are missing us, though it has been extremely windy today.

Tried to leave a comment - not sure it went thru.

That photo is worthy of being desktop wallpaper! I love peonies and 4 of mine are just coming in bloom. 4 are finished. 2 - battered by the storm.
