June was a month full of Peonies along my fence.
A glimpse of one out of my sketchbook.
This year they lasted well into July.
They started out as a vibrant pink.
Everyday was a party of pinkness.
As the weeks went on the color started to mellow out.
Then we had a terrible storm and over half of them landed on the ground.
They were all hit hard and drooping.
A lot that were still on the stalk looked like this.
The few with petals began to take on an abstract form.
By the beginning of July,,,the last petals.
As of yesterday......
Reminds me of a jester´s hat.....
Looks like a moose head....
The new and the old.
