Blooming Peonies (牡丹花開)

It is again June, the time for peonies in our yard to bloom towards the Sun.

They are beautiful, delicate and graceful souls.  The flower, the National Flower of China, is considered by Chinese as a Pure symbol of wealth and prosperity.

A few days ago, my daughter asked me to tie the peonies into her hair.  After doing so, I was also inspired to shoot their images in a different way – using my daughter’s head as a place to display the fully blooming and Graceful peonies.
