    1. My pleasure. I cheated with this picture because I wanted the peonies to look as if they were in a garden setting, even though they were cut flowers. I spent some time wandering around the Forest of Bowland with the vase looking for a good spot to put it. I found quite a few places but this was my favourite.

      1. I did notice the “cheat,” but I thought it added kind of a wink, and I like winks. I do love the image of your wandering around with the vases, looking for a the right placement. I bet there were any number of chipmunks scratching their heads, wondering what you were about.

    1. I could have cropped a little tighter on the flowers but wanted to show the artifice of the staged against the natural. Now I’m wondering how many people will have spotted the vase – it’s fairly unobtrusive.

        1. It was quite well hidden – and if you’re anything like me, you’re often growing on a phone which makes it more difficult to catch all the details.

  1. Gorgeous. Where did you take this photo please – my peonies aren’t even in bud yet…..??? But the roses are… Not sure that I understand what is happening this Spring! Simone

    1. I’ve noticed roses flowering earlier this year too. This is one of last year’s shots, and I was having a bit of fun with some cut flowers… but those fat buds of yours will be bursting into flower soon enough!

    1. I’d love to be able to visit a flower farm or a peony garden one year. They must be magical at the just right time, in soft light…. am I drifting off into fantasy here?
