This photograph of a large white/pink peony with a red and white bud nestled next to it was taken in 2009, in Middle Temple Gardens, Inns of Court, London, UK. When I went back to visit in 2014, I was sad to see that all the beautiful flowers had been removed from this section of the Middle Temple Great Garden. I have not seen another peony like this one since. http://ronablack.com/featured/rain-soaked-peonies-rona-black.html. www.ronablack.com

A close-up photograph of a beautiful young male Star Finch perched on moss covered rock at the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, British Columbia. I am always struck by how the wonderfully bright colors of the birds and the tropical flowers blend to create such a cheerful atmosphere at this conservatory and aviary. Definitely one of my favorite places; I tend to spend a few hours each time I visit. http://ronablack.com/featured/young-star-finch-rona-black.html

While I was in Pasadena in May I loved seeing the flowering Blue Jacaranda all over the city. On a visit to the hills of Rancho Palos Verdes one day I was disappointed at first that the Jacaranda were not yet in bloom. Later in the evening, though, I thought the silhouette of this tree with its feathery leaves was quite beautiful. rona-black.artistwebsites.com. http://ronablackphotography.wordpress.com 0 comments
