"A Casualty"

By RonnieAG
A peony blown down with yesterday's rain and winds but saved for a bit of indoor RonnieAG kitchen sink studio attention.

My thanks to all who commented so favourably on In Amongst the Campanula and with special thanks to Barbara {barbarahirst} for her User Award.

Fantastic lighting and the red has so many fine tones that your flower looks 3dimensional.

I am, these days, so very reluctant to cut flowers just for a photo opportunity and any Meconopsis which suffer in the weather as your Peony did, are almost a bonus! Glorious image here; the colours, light, diagonal slant and bg are all superb, as always in your images.

A darkly romantic image of this fine Rose, making good use of a windfall to brighten a damp Saturday morning.

I have come to the conclusion Ronnie that the Kitchen sink is commandeered a tad too often to be the domain of Jasmine therefore I can only assume you are in fact POD (prince of the dishes).

The jury returned a 12 to 3 verdict on the redesignation of the dark side, unfortunately, not on your side. The three votes, for, were a real surprise however on closer investigation it was found they had been got at by the dark side. Tisk

Now to the image a real winner Ronnie perfection in a sink so it has to be !!!!! UA time

Ps EMJAYCEE is a tad confused as to our banter on the dark side perhaps you could offer an unbiased explanation and if necessary I will step in with any corrections required!! (See her comment on my pic yesterday)

very fine work Ronnie a pleasure to view

Beautiful shot Ronnie. I too have this colour peony in my garden and the flowers are suffering something terrible in our unseasonal weather - I might have to cut what's left to bring indoors - I hate doing that tooGrin

A beautifully presented peony Ronnie, so expertly done as always. I must say we have been quite lucky in escaping the worst of the weather so far
16 Jun 2012 3:55PM
Wonderful deep Red and so good with the rich Green Ronnie. Certainly worth saving, and nice use of Window light.
