Dads back garden 29.4.2011, Harleston Norfolk Uk.
Well after sitting and watching the Royal wedding with my Mum and Dad and Grace I went and had a look round his garden as Mum Tree Peony was in flower and tried to capture it a few days prior but not happy with the images, now it was wide and petals ready to drop. Also we had the coffee table laiden with goodies so had been feasting most of the morning and early afternoon.
I even took my Tripod and used it this time this is such a stunning flower just wish I was able to do it justice, the deep pink of the petals and the detailed center. But it is a flower I will have to take more images of to really show its beauty.
