12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Delicate Peony Petals

Peonies bring me great joy in late summer through fall. When I see them out my window, I have to go outside to see them closer, touch them, and photograph them. I just wish they could last year round. However; I anticipate next summer just to see their glorious blooms again.
