Pure Peony

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.

Blush Pink Peony

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.

Flamenco Pink Peony

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.

Peony Passions

So many peonies, so little time. Again, another peony from last year’s photo shoot at the botanical gardens. This lovely bloom is the fried egg of blossoms, with the soft white outer petals, and the bright yellow centre.
