Peonies





The peonies are in bloom.

Do you say pee-oh-nees or peeah-nees?

All the photos came out underexposed but I kind of liked it that way. Did I tell you all we got an elderly DSLR? I love it, even when I don't use it properly.

  2. You might consider selling your prints, like Adventures in Renovating a Brooklyn Limestone does? Beautiful..

  4. I say pe-ah-nees. But I've never sure which is right! And I love how these photos turned out...very haunting.

  8. Just found you and I just love peonies so much. Have a bouquet of them sitting on the dining table now. Funny though, when I saw the small shot of them on your sidebar, I thought it was some kind of cool light fixture or hanging party ball. Got me thinking...

    Great photos! Thanks for sharing!
