Ball of petals

Tree Peony Flower,  Nikon D7000
31st May 2013

The flower on the tree Peony has been a tight ball of petals for a while now.   I did wonder with all the rain if it would just rot and fall off without opening.

The sun today though has warmed it enough to unfurl and start to put on a show.

The flowers opened earlier last year, and I also did much better with the picture; although I am happy with the more abstract composition this time of red and green masses, slapped wrist Evan for clipping the red channel and causing magenta highlights!
