  26. Peonies are such delicate blossoms. I can’t grow them at altitude, but touch their fragile faces in Denver. Perfect photos to do them credit.

    Popcorn of the flower world. A feast for the eyes, sanctuary for mind and conscience. I remember seeing years ago, a photograph taken somewhere in Europe during World War Two. A mound of white peonies stood, you could see tank and military vehicle tracks which had deliberately steered to avoid running over them.
