REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

I'm thinking late spring....

For a change from winter and landscapes, I've chosen my favorite flower...the peony.  My late mother had a huge peony garden and I have at least 25 of my own plants.  This particular flower came for Christmas in an order that didn't work well--the freeway in this side of Oregon was closed for two days and the peonies sat in the cold in a FedEx location just an hour and a half from my home.  (I'm getting a replacement order when the weather is warmer.)  The background is the lid for a tea crate that I found at one of my favorite little "everything" shops.

Lovely capture.. nice to see a cheery peony.
We have a good 10 inches of snow here, very unusual for us. Looks like you have lots more.

This is so pretty, Evelyn, and I love the tea crate.

Seeing a peony in January is very exciting, and of course very pretty on dreary gray day. Our snowfall is quite minimal this year, with plenty of rain for moisture.
