Tree peony shadow
Here, for Shadow Shot Sunday, is the very first bloom from my four-year-old Tree Peony. Isn't it beautiful? I bought it when we first put some plants in at the back of the house but it's suffered a few setbacks. First of all it was in a pot, which kept it from properly rooting. Then for two years in a row its bud was accidently broken off. Last year it was moved behind something else and didn't get the water it needed. But now it's found a forever place and it's taking off.
I just love the big floppy petals and the shadows they cast--plus that stunning centre bit.
Gardening just gets better and better for me!
