I took a photo of a white peony bud when I entered a garden this morning and when I left half an hour later the same flower had newly opened. So here is its second photo.

Eye-filling paintings and photos excite me. Mine are inspired by the interplay of color, especially when it creates a cheerful and thoughtful impression. I am a photographer/writer/artist and love both nature and tech stuff. I also publish garden books — see my website. Thanks for looking at my work.
