This image of the peony patch is from my archives which I shot at our local retirement community a few years ago - not this year however - for the past 2 years the grounds were restricted to the public due to covid so I was not able to take any shots - this year open access was available - I was so excited that I would now be permitted on the grounds to take pics of the newly bloomed peonies - this was not to be - just as the peonies were at their peak we had a series of bad thunder storms and heavy rain - when I did go back to see the peonies, they were all drooped and their petals were missing due to the rain - so enjoy this variety from previous years - You know what they say, there's always next year - As always, I'm wishing everyone at Caedes a Great Weekend

Laura, it's very unfortunate that the weather in your area wasn't cooperative this year to photograph the peonies in their full glory. However, your alternative, a choice from the bin, is very fine. So your weekly Foofy Friday (F) contribution is well chosen. The colorful peony carpet provides us with a festive look.
The persistent wins: so a second chance next year, 😁 !

I wish you a great weekend as well!

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

Beautiful capture, we had almost the same happened this year only we had a kind of sleet storm that took them all down. They were beautiful just like yours.
