Like many places, Edmonton has had a cooler spring/early summer so the peonies are just blooming. We live in a mature neighbourhood and it seems like every second yard has a peony shrub in full bloom. Wow, are they spectacular! We took the dogs out for a walk after the rain and I captured this beauty escaping from the chain link fence.
Why is this beautiful?
- I love peony season! The layers of soft petals and the fresh, sweet smell as I walked by, lifted my spirit.
- It's easy to complain about all the rain we have been having but the rain droplets on the petals add whimsy...and the peonies are very full this year because of the rain.
- This particular peony is beautiful because it is refusing to be constrained by the fence. You go Peony!
