Weather conditions are proving dire for photography at the moment - high winds, heavy rain and difficult light. As I prefer not to cut flowers, this makes for challenging times! Thought you might like to share my pleasure in seeing my much loved Peony, "Molly the Witch" again as she makes her all too brief appearance with 15 flowerheads. A long way on from the just 2 leaves when she first came to live in my garden 7 years ago!

V1, I altered the bg which was messy in PS. Others are pretty much as they came from the camera.

Thanks to all who commented/voted on "Friday the 13th". Really did enjoy seeing the two lovely Mods offered by Silverzone & digital-boi. A huge and most pleasant surprise to be given a UA from SlowSong! Really delighted by the response. Good to do something a little different in my case!

This is really beautiful peony, Ann, and such a delight to view in these lively images. The problems of capturing them in their natural setting can be quite challenging but you have done a fine job here. I think V 1 takes a lot of beating......I do like the altered b/g....shows off the bloom so well.

V2 is my favourite in this lovely set. Know what you mean about the weather - we are just back from sunny Spain where there was only a light breeze. What a shock to the system.
