Today's Flowers: 05-30-10 - Peonies and more.


Today's Flowers hosts can be found here.






I'm happy to be the guest friend for Today's Flowers. Welcome newcomers!

The peonies are in bloom here in Portland. The robust flowers don't last long, so I felt the need to capture them for posterity.



I love to get right down inside a flower and see what's in there.


I thought this looked like little naked birds in a nest.

And, for something completely different, here's our dog, Liza Jane, shining as the flower girl at her first wedding.

A good year for rhodies

The valleys and peaks of the rhododendron buds capture dew drops perfectly.
