Still too busy to post anything sensible here but I keep rushing outside with the camera to enjoy this amazing time of year. I wish my camera had a manual focus but at least it has a decent macro setting allowing me to imagine living inside a peony or taking a vacation, as a pill bug might, in the shade of this palm tree. I could dip my tiny toes into these dew cups.
Thank you Zoe for sharing your grandmother's story that fairies live in peony flowers. Sounds like she would have been a friend for my grandmother. (How funny that my camera is an elph!)
I don't know what this is but it is growing in an old plant pot in my garden.
