The huge white peonies at Mill Creek Park are fading fast, although new buds look promising. Taken with my Canon EF 100 f/2.8 macro lens. Lots of errands to run today so will comment when I can.

A Beauty even as it fades.
Sue's are still tight balls on slender stalks. Poor bush has been moved and abused so much its hard to believe it still comes back. This spring a new fence went in and it took a pounding....

Happy Shooting
