I found these wild flower shots the other day when I finally had some spare time to edit my photos from the last month. They were taken over our trips to Maine in July. I love how the Northeast absolutely explodes with wild flowers in the summer. All that pent up winter chill just bursting at the seams as if in a hurry to catch every ray of sunshine before fall arrives. And with Labor Day two weeks away fall is approaching fast. I hate to wish away the summer, but the end of summer also means our house will (hopefully) be habitable. Until then I will enjoy summer to the very last drop, and hopefully squeeze in another trip to Maine to see my sister. Don’t these fields just scream “run through me?”

Last week, my intern Jacalyn found the most amazing peonies for our photo shoot. (I was Instagraming pictures of them all weekend.) They were perfect bight magenta pink and looked amazing in the photo shoot.
The peonies were pretty closed up when she purchased them at Winston’s Flowers, however, they sure did not stay that small!
With the heat we had last week they began to open almost as she stepped out of the shop. Once we cut them and put them in fresh water, they got bigger by the second.
After the shoot I took them home to enjoy and they just got bigger and bigger.
And they started getting lighter…
By Monday they were completely bleached out!
I had never seen anything like that! A little Google searching by Jacalyn Monday morning revealed that once cut some types of peonies bleach out…It was amazing.

I think Spring is may favorite time of year. So bright and hopeful.
