One of the few flowers I've uploaded this year - I think it's a tree peony.
Thanks for looking and for your time.
Many thanks to morpheus1955 and to marktc for their UAs for Luskentyre Beach - they are much appreciated.

This is beautiful Ann. The tissue like petals remind me of the girls of the Moulin Rogue ruffling their petticoats. Very beautiful indeed. Grin

Subtle colours and textures here Ann, a marvellous look inside this flower. I'm inclined to agree with Malc, like maybe there's a little golden trinket in there to break your heart with delight.

I'm a sad old romantic, but the image is very nice and very thought provoking.
