these botanical treasures spotted at Filoli (a little south of San Francisco) last week. paeonies are some of my favourite flowers, capable of inducing knee-trembling delight and excessive photo-documentary activity
they don't survive here on the farm and yet in this neck of California that receives a couple of inches less than we do in terms of annual rainfall, they flourish with great abundance
another one of life's great mysteries...
