Life and Death…..

A popular quotation reminds us that in the midst of life, we are surrounded by death. Not exactly a cheerful thought, but as I was shooting peony photos this evening–in advance of a severe thunderstorm forecast–the quotation came to mind. This photo of a spent peony, backed up by the tightly sealed bud of a bloom yet to open, is a poignant reminder that life and death exist simultaneously, side by side.
