Day Two Hundred Fifteen

'Peony Delight'
8 x 8 oil on panel
95.00 + 6.00 s + h

One reason I think that flowers of this type are so 'appreciated', by me, anyway, is because they only last for such a short time. The bush will bloom, and if they don't get rain damage, they will possible stay for almost a week.... then it's another year before you can enjoy them again....
Yesterday was my son's girlfriend's birthday. She's truly a special young lady !! I bought her her own 'Tree Peony' bush, so she can enjoy them each year the way I do !


  1. Great job with the swirls on the vase. Lovely flowers and beautifully painted!

  2. Very rich, Sandy. Those are very complicated flowers, and you captured them well. I've never seen a peony. It's too hot and dry for them to grow here.

  3. Very pretty. I love all flowers, but agree with you about the peony. The days it's in bloom are to be anticipated and then treasured! Great Birthday present!
