I didn’t need them to pose for me to take their photographs. They were gladly showing off their colors and true beauty. One Sunday afternoon at Elizabeth Park, my mind was filled with outburst joy. And though they should be boastful, they certainly most humblest. The more prettier they become, the lower their heads would be. What a lovely, lovely things I saw before me. Oh, peonies!
