A Peony 'Crinkled White' captured at the National Trust, Lytes Cary Manor a little while ago. I just liked all the creases!

Many thanks to everyone who commented and voted on my recent Porthleven shot - there will be more!
Best wishes

White petals are never the easiest to capture but the crinkly papery textures of these poppies does make things a little easier.
Lovely shot and presentation, and the presence of the bud is so attractive.
