It has been a long time since my creative juices flowed and this beautiful peony has helped this evening. This photograph was taken on Sunday when I visited a local garden during the Wyndham Street Races in memory of Burt Munro. Most would know Burt from Anthony Hopkins portrayal of him in The World's Fastest Indian.
The soft pink with the darker mauve petals beneath make this quite an unusual peony, to me. I have very little knowledge of peonies, so I can't tell you what it is called.
I hope you enjoy this beauty as much as I do.
