Tree peony

Tree peony, originally uploaded by Things We Love.

The trouble with peonies is that they don't last long enough! This photo was snapped a day or two too late. The first morning I saw the bloom it literally took my breath away... this was the first year it blossomed after planting it three years ago and I didn't quite expect to see the sudden opening of petals. That morning the flower wasn't quite open so I didn't run inside for the camera. Then three days of rain came beating down. Maybe I missed the picture-perfect moment but. Still. Gorgeous!
