Hi Val, your flowers are happy for the rain. You photos are always lovely and detailed. Enjoy your week.

guild-rez sa...

Great shots and very beautiful flowers.
I know how you feel. You wait for such a long time to see the flowers bloom and the rain destroys them in a very short time.

Nance sa...

awwww ... rain is good but sometimes because peonies are top heavy, they just fall on the ground sometimes.
Love your photography ... and by the way, I just signed up for TF.

George sa...

Rain sometimes does the same thing to my roses. But I thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful pictures. The color of your flowers is beautiful.

Nydelig fanget som viser kaoset etter et regnvær uten at bildet i seg selv virker kaotisk.

Is that Rhododendron? I could liken it to a double-petalled Hibiscus. Lovely shot as ever.

What a magnificent series of pictures! Peonies are some of my most favorite, unfortunately the deer favor them as well so I can't grow them.

Carver sa...

Those flowers are so beautiful and I love how you showed us the shots after it rained.

That's life! Pioner är så vackra, och tänk om det fanns en parfym som doftade lika gott som dom!

Svein sa...

Jeg glemte å binde opp våre før blomstring, slik at det nok dessverre er de 2 siste bildene som ligner mest på våre peoner i år. Lover at det skal aldri gjenta seg....

Beautiful, elegant and vulnerable flowers ... Wonderful shots!

Beautiful Nature and shots.

Rune (Bildebloggen) sa...

Fordelen med regnvær,er at man slipper å vanne blomstene før man skal ta bilde av de, :) Men nå håper jeg snart solen dukker opp igjen. Fine bilder

Helge sa...

Fine blomsterbilder..og det fra Oslohimmelen var jo helt enormt..

Grace and Bradley sa...

These are really peony from heaven, so beautiful. I always like peony, similar to rose, both of them originated from China. I have seem Chinese painting painted many hundreds years ago showing peonies in their full bloom.

Rosamaria sa...

Some times rains makethe same to my flowers. It's so sad!

Have a great week, Valkyrien!

thecozyretreat sa...

Beautiful! The same thing happens to part of mine as well.

Judy sa...

Oh, Valkyrien, these photos are so beautiful! I love the raindrops on the petals! And you have done something I have not been able to - make a photo of the fallen petals look good!!!

Carletta sa...

I love how they are nestled in the greenery in the first image.
Lovely!!

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

Oh, they are so dainty peonies. We don't have them here but I've seen the real ones in Amsterdam. They really are beautiful and you make them more lovely with your photos. Am sorry for being late here, just kinda busy.
