"In Amongst the Campanula"

By RonnieAG
Another one from the back garden......Peony "Dr. Alexander Fleming" leaning in amongst the Campanula. Once again taken at wide open aperture and telephoto (170mm.) setting to separate but not divorce it from it's neighbours.

My thanks as ever for all the comments on Through a Wisteria Window, and with special thanks to Sylvia {teocali} and John {lifesnapper} for their User Awards which are so gratefully received.

Colour co-ordinated and well-thought out composition, Ronnie, the peony is well framed by the blue flowers and the sprig of leaves in the left corner balances the whole image. Beautifully done.
