The Diptych Project: Summer

 The Diptych Project: two friends (once neighbors & now an ocean apart), one theme

For me, peonies symbolize the start of summer.  My mom has a peony bush growing in our backyard and despite living far away for many years, I often visited my parents near the start of the summer when the peonies blossoms were just making their entrance.  I love watching the flowers transform from tightly closed orbs in to extravagantly layered blooms, their scent filling any room.  Their abundant beauty almost takes my breath away.

I love your picture, and am so impressed your parents have a peony tree in the garden! I've only ever seen them in a flower shop and they are my most favourite flowers ever. So funny how similar our photos are, even down to the colour!
