Peony

It has taken years, but it looks like my peonies are finally starting to bloom for real. This white one was one of the first this year, hidden behind our rose of sharon. We’ve got some pink ones, both double and single, that look like they’ll bloom in the next couple of days as well.

Poppy

Poppies are my favorite flowers to photograph. In my garden these orange icelandic poppies come back every year, but I can’t for the life of me get the big asian poppy to bloom :(
