FOTD – June 8 – Faded Peony and Friend

Welcome to my Flower of the Day Challenge (FOTD).  Please feel free to post every day or when you you feel like it.  Don’t forget that my FOTD challenge accepts gardens, leaves and berries as well as flowers.

I took this photo on June 6, 2021. I took these photos with my new Sony 4.0 70-200mm G OSS lens.

I would appreciate you continuing to post your entries on my daily post entries.  If you need more information here is a link to my FOTD page.

I’ve gathered a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

  1. This is very good Cee. I’ve been shooting dead Peonies for a week and just couldn’t get the shot I wanted, I was probably too close. πŸ‘

    • Depends on what you are seeing. I typically don’t take photos of dead flowers, because I don’t see the beauty in them. This one I just took for the heck of it and it actually turned out somewhat good. There are people who really see the beautify in fading flowers and their photography is outstanding.

  2. This flower just got another chance to be appreciated even in her demise. πŸ™‚ One thing I like about “spent” flowers…my son was told when he worked for a nursery that the faded flowers were not dead…just spent.

    I have some red/white tulips that have special meaning to me, and this year they just hung on and on…not pretty, but persistent . πŸ™‚


  3. “…Delta Dawn, what’s that flower you have on? It’s just a faded rose from days gone by…” comes to mind. I admit I’m an incurable romantic and have a fondness for past-their-prime things…
