I'm always amazed at how fast peonies spring up out of the ground each year and throw open blooms almost overnight. It's like they are in a hurry to get the flowers out of the way so they can move on to some other phase. A local community has been having a peony festival this time of year and it seemed like a good chance to photograph these showy plants. The day had plenty of sun and little wind so the blooms were at their peak.
The variations on red and white were expected - it's what you see in the yards around here. What was a surprise were the yellow ones. Not a color I've seen in peonies before but hope to see more.
