Another of the gorgeous peonies from the botanical gardens at the university Laval. This peaches and cream bloom is the perfect representation of summer. Happy summer solstice.
Oh, how I love peonies, they’re such versatile flowers, and the sheer range of colour never ceases to amaze me. Today I’m sharing this wonderful warm lemon bloom with a ripple of fiery red at its heart.
I love, love, love this powder pink petaled peony. Soft, rich, luscious and eye-catching. I say powder pink, but this could easily be called baby blush pink. Either way, I love the colour.
Bright, clear white petals, with a vivid lemon heart, this peony has an unusual petal arrangement that I’ve not seen before—almost like a dahlia. I love the sheer versatility of this flower, and love that the botanical gardens grows so many different varieties each year.
I never realised just how many variations of peony there were till I started visiting the University Laval botanical gardens, a few years back. The sheer variety of colour and shape seems endless. Certainly I have the photographic evidence to support the theory.
Easter Monday and the sun is shining in a crystal clear sky, it’s warm and balmy, and maybe, just maybe, the weather is finally going our way. I hope so. In the meantime, here’s another gloriously rich pink peony for last year’s photo shoot.
