Floral Friday : Flower In Focus

Peony Flower, Pink Peony, Red Peony, White Peony, Peonies, Flower Photography
One flower takes the spotlight for this month's Floral Friday and I chose peonies which happen to be my favorite for their delicate beauty and light sweet fragrance. What is your favorite flower?

Floral Fridays is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along, please email Trishie for next month's theme. And please visit my fellow participants below for more inspirations. See more of my Floral Friday posts.

Happy Independence Day to all my friends and readers in the US! I'm so excited the fireworks have moved back to the East River in NYC and we can watch them from our terrace again. Be safe and enjoy a wonderful weekend everyone!

Beautiful images of my favourite flower! We grew the pink variety in the garden of one of the houses we owned, while growing up in Canada, and their sweet and refreshing scent is still very fragrant in my memory.

Thank you for sharing! Happy 4th!

Love your photography!
My favorites are white orchids with purple lips but I love peony, too. It adds such a delicate feminine touch when used in fragrances.

These photos are marvellous of the peonies. I love flowers, especially tulips (my favourite), but adore the peonies, and hydrangeas too.
Enjoy your weekend Rowena.

Hope you had a lovely Independence Day!
UGH. IN AWE OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS. You've managed to make these peonies look uber delicate. I remember one year I had access to a garden full of peonies, so I had a large vase full of them and they made me happy for quite a while. My room smelled divine for weeks. :D

Rory said...
