Peony – the king is back.


Some months ago, I posted a photo from my archive of a Peony.  One of the comments to that picture, was from the Japanese artist Drue Kataoka, who told me that the Peony is known as “the king of flowers.” I think this title is well deserved, I love this plant, and now that the time has come to enjoy fresh flowers, its clear that it is a king that is back.
I picked the first flowers yesterday, and as I promised in April, I was thinking of the Peony fans that wrote comments back then; Mrs. Uhdd , pbsweeny , Erika , Drue and Melinda . I wish you, and every other Peony-fan, a profusion of kings.

    I think Queen of flowers would be more fitting. The peony is very feminine.
    Beautiful shots again, Birgitte. And thanks for thinking of us when you picked them!

    And I also liked the peonies…they smell just like roses only big and fluffy! That last photo is incredible! Definitely contest-winning stuff!
