Peonies opening 2

Peony flowers are so interesting because they start off as small tight balls, then open up to be glorious masses of petals and color. These peonies were so vivid and beautiful, but unique because of the two colors - pink and peach - on one flower. Once the peony was open the inside was of the flower was so stunning and dramatic.
