White Peony Rose

The heart of the peony is like a fire burning with white flames. An image for the Summer Solstice, because midsummer bonfires are a tradition here in Ireland.

The shot required lying down in the flowerbed in Birr Castle gardens, and waiting for the wind to PLEASE cease for just a moment, before I died of old age, waiting! Fortunately, no-one else was in that part of the garden!
