The remains of a peony at the beginning of fall. Posted by Picasa

I don't know if I have ever seen a peony. Hmmm, looks like an interesting flower.

Very nice shot!

I'm sure you've seen one -- but probably not in this stage. All the petals are gone and what's left is essentially the peony version of a rose hip. If I remember correctly this was a "Sarah Bernhardt" double peony. For the life of me I can't find one of my pictures, so I'll give a florist some free advertising. Scroll down to the pink one. These plants are frequently featured in Chinese art.
