An explosion of pink petals, like a flower's version of a conversation... lovely!
That vivid and beautiful like a pink snowball fight has just begun.
yum! peonies, one of my fav flowers - I just cut all mine in the garden and brought them indoors - the rain is just beating them up so bad! xxo
love all the fallen petals...rather sad.
Looks like someone subscribes to the faye school of mowing...anything between the grass and moweris fair game.
although they are not a perfect specimen anymore, they are just as beautiful!
It's almost as if they're in jail, and the only way they can be free is to die. Beautiful.wv: danil. If Joe can't sweep up the sidewalk, Danil do it.
raspberry pink and black always go so well together.You also manufacture fencing?
Oh, poor peony. To fall and then be trampled...
There must be a lot of blooms to create so many petals.
Great shot - truly wordless.
The peony (Paeonia) is named after the Greek god Paean who was known for his skill as a healer. One day, Paean used the root of the peony plant to heal Pluto. Asclepius, the god of healing, himself grew jealous over Paen’s skill and threatened to kill his talented follower. Pluto rescued Paean from a painful death by turning him into the peony flower.... just saying....
Nice -- looks like the aftermath of a rain or high wind.
Love peonies but they do shatter.
Looks like my front yard a few weeks ago!<><
I love when the petals spread out and decorate their surroundings :)
Either flower abuse or mother nature blowing too hard
Oh I so feel that peony's pain....
I love the colorful burst of petals! Although it makes me a little sad too...
seems like the flowers had a rough night...that will teach them to tie one on...smiles.
Peony does a Houdini trick. I wait so long for them to bloom and if I turn around and sneeze they are fading out already and gone. I wish they would last forever with that vibrant girly girl Pink color.
The heavy flowers.. sad when they get so beat up by rain and weather! Very cool shot with the petals around though!
i could smell that, dar!loved da cartoon too :)Aloha from WaikikiComfort Spiral
I absolutely love the way the flowers spill through the wrought iron and the petals flow to the ground. Great one!
You'll be interested to know that our peonies have yet to bud. I guess the severe frost we had the other night didn't help huh?
so pretty these peonies are! I love finding flower petals covering the ground.
I always get a little sad when the roses start to drop their petals, it's like a sign...beautiful shot, though
So glad it's not just my peonies doing that - I thought I was supposed to hoist them up or something!
Peonies were my bridal bouquet. I love coming to your blog to get a NYC fix, and this shot brings me back home too.
Catch them while you can...great shot.
Even in ruin peonies are simply beautiful. WV: haglywelI do not go to flea markets because I simply do not haglywel. (sigh)
It's sad to see a peony drop its petals. They are such beautiful flowers.
This one looked like it had a rough day and lost its petals.
First thing that came to mind was the top peony's saying 'Gesundheit'!
That says "summer in the city." Without any words.
at first these peonies totally reminded me of the jack-o-lantern image that circulated a few years ago where he was throwing up his own seeds...and then my mind threw in a filter to keep the crass thoughts out...
The flowers look like a tale of suicide by one while the other looks on... A really smart picture opportunity...
