Peony, that is! 🙂 The rain hasn’t gotten them all, although, sadly, we are coming to the end of peony season.

“Pristine” (Herbaceous Peony, ‘Marie Lemoine’) Nikon D300, 70mm, F/9, 1/1000s, -1.0EV, ISO 400

This particular variety is one of the last to bloom and it is well worth the wait! The lucious creamy-white, double blooms have a deligthfully sweet fragrance and are regarded as one of the handsomest peonies.

I caught it early this morning after (another) night of rainfall before it opened fully and liked how it appeared as though the raindrops had washed it completely clean. No bugs, no discolorations, no rips or tears.

Just perfect. 🙂
