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

Rain-soaked Peonies has become my best-selling image. It is the first of my photographs to have been purchased in every format offered: framed prints, stretched canvas prints and greeting cards. I found these beautiful flowers in London at the Middle Temple Garden of the Inns of Court in the spring of 2009. I've never seen any other like them. They were unusual both for their size and color; they were quite large and the color gradation included pink and yellow in the same bloom. Raindrops added to the unique presentation. rona-black.artistwebsites.com 0 comments

rain soaked peonies, 2009 11" _ 15" Roses weren't the only flowers I spent time photographing in London. I found these peonies in the Middle Temple Garden at the Inns of Court. As in every garden in London in May and June, there were also roses in abundance, but I usually went to Queen Mary's Gardens in Regent's Park for those. These were unusual both for their size and color; they were quite large and the color gradation included pink and yellow in the same bloom. www.ronablack.com http://www.activesearchresults 2 comments
